When I try start splunk without sudo (or even logged in as root), I get a "no such file or directory" error. The file's definitely there though, it's not even a symlink. It works with sudo, but then ps shows nothing's running and I can't access it through the web portal.
$ /opt/splunk/bin/splunk start -bash: /opt/splunk/bin/splunk: No such file or directory $ sudo /opt/splunk/bin/splunk start $ ps aux | grep splunk marco 25963 0.0 0.1 7972 900 pts/0 S+ 22:58 0:00 grep splunk
Any ideas what's up? I've accepted the license (
sudo splunk start --accept-license) and changed the port to 8001 (
sudo ./splunk set web-port 8001).
