Unable to Export Events from Cmd line


I am attempting to move data from one index to another. I've read that the way to do this is to export the events you want to move, then import them using the Export and Import commands. However, when I attempt to export the commands, I get an error. Here's my syntax and error:

splunk export eventdata -index IISLOGS -host WWW01 -dir f:\temp

Failed cli cmd export

Anyone know what is causing this?

Have you looked into using exporttool and importtool? Another option is to simply move an entire bucket. (You have to be careful to use a bucket id that's not already in use.
