Logging stack fails to send to splunk with error "Token disabled"

This document (000021262) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


Rancher-logging chart in RKE/RKE2,  is installed and configured to send logs to Splunk


Getting the following error in fluentd logs:
#0 [clusterflow:cattle-logging-system:testflow:clusteroutput:cattle-logging-system:testoutput] Fluent::Plugin::SplunkHecOutput: Failed POST to https://X.X.X.X:8088/services/collector, response: {"text":"Token disabled","code":1}

Note: fluentd does not log to stdout, but instead to /fluentd/log/out within the container's filesystem.


Re-check the Splunk token to see whether it's correct. You can go to the below path in Splunk admin GUI and confirm whether the token is valid and enabled. You can enable it if it's disabled. 

Settings >> Data Inputs >> HTTP Event Collector >> Global Settings >> All Tokens >> Enabled
