Hello,

I am trying to install and run a Splunk Univeral Forwarder v8.2.1 on a number of Solaris SPARC 11.3 servers but I am getting this error message.

$ /opt/splunkforwarder/bin/splunk start --accept-license --answer-yes
ld.so.1: splunk: fatal: relocation error: file /opt/splunkforwarder/bin/splunk: symbol in6addr_any: referenced symbol not found
Killed

The requirements here https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Forwarder/8.2.1/Forwarder/Systemrequirements state the system should have SUNW_1.22.7 or later in the libc.so.1 library, and it does.

# pvs /usr/lib/libc.so.1
libc.so.1;
SUNWpublic;
SUNW_1.23;
SUNW_1.22.7;
SUNW_1.22.6;

SUNW_1.1;
SUNW_0.9;
SUNW_0.8;
SUNW_0.7;
SISCD_2.3;
SYSVABI_1.3;
SUNWprivate_1.1;

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

Hi, 

We are having the exact same issue on Solaris 11.3 x64. Did you find a workaround for this?
