Deployment Architecture

Apps not deploying correctly

I'm setting up a new deployment server and a test client. When deploying apps to this client, I get these sorts of errors in the client log:

11-08-2011 11:08:16.404 -0600 WARN  DeployedApplication - Installing app: linux to location: /opt/splunkforwarder/etc/apps/linux
11-08-2011 11:08:16.407 -0600 ERROR IniFile - Cannot open ini file for parsing: No such file or directory
11-08-2011 11:08:16.407 -0600 ERROR ConfObjectManagerDB - Cannot initialize: /opt/splunkforwarder/etc/apps/linux/metadata/local.meta

The actual app files update, but I cannot figure out why it's having a problem with the metadata. Here's my serverclass.conf:

[global]
blacklist.0=*
restartSplunkd = True

[serverClass:AppsByMachineType]
machineTypes=windows-intel,linux-i686,linux-x86_64

[serverClass:AppsByMachineType:app:allservers]
machineTypes=windows-intel,linux-i686,linux-x86_64

[serverClass:AppsByMachineType:app:windows]
machineTypes=windows-intel

[serverClass:AppsByMachineType:app:linux]
machineTypes = linux-x86_64,linux-i686
restartSplunkd = True

Any ideas would be appreciated.

One additional note: it doesn't seem like the clients are acutally restarting Splunkd like they should be, but I'm not sure why.

In case anyone is curious, the problem here was the lack of a metadata/local.meta file in the app directory on the deployment server. Once that was in place, the app was installed successfully to the client, which then restarted splunkd.

I am facing similar issue, how did you get the metadata/local.meta file in place in the app directory?

Please let us know.

Thanks
