Your indexes and inputs configurations are not internally consistent. For more information, run 'splunk btool check --debug'

I see below output after running splunk btool check --debug

I would recommend to reinstall DB Connect app because I have DB Connect 3.1.1 installed in my lab environment and I have checklist.conf in default directory and splunk is not complaining about this file.
