I have upgraded splunk to splunk version 4.3 but I am not seeing Data preview option as in this
I was able to get this working with the help of Splunk Support. it's a known issue with the splunk_datapreview app and search head pooling (shp).
here's the work around:
- go to one of your search heads, find the splunk_datapreview app (should be in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps) and copy it to my seach head pool share's etc/apps/
- restart each search head
after i performed the work around the data preview screen did appear as expected when i used the Add Data dialogs.
I've updated the relevant upgrade and troubleshooting topics in the Distributed Deployment Manual to make this point more clear: "Caution: The migration utility warns you of apps that need to be copied to shared storage for pooled search heads when you upgrade them. It does not, however, copy them for you. You must manually copy all updated apps - including apps that ship with Splunk (such as the Search app and Data Preview) - to shared storage during the upgrade process. Failure to do so can cause problems with Splunk's user interface after the upgrade is complete."
So, just to be clear: when you click Add Data and choose the type of data you want to add, you don't see a wizard page that gives you the choice to "Preview data before indexing" or "Skip preview?"
