Good morning Patrick.
This is a new tentacle we are trying to configure on a Splunk Linux server running RHEL 8.4. However, we have attempted it several times.
Our System Admin has tried installing the tentacle-6.1.690-1.x86_64.rpm and tentacle-6.1.670-linux_x64.tar.gz
He was able to finally get things unpacked using the following:
tar xvzf tentacle-linux_x64.tar.gz -C /opt/octopus
The error occurs when he attempt to configure the tentacle after the install.
Name of Tentacle instance (default Tentacle):
Invalid characters will be ignored, the instance name will be: ‘Tentacle’
What kind of Tentacle would you like to configure: 1) Listening or 2) Polling (default 1):
Where would you like Tentacle to store log files? (/etc/octopus):
Where would you like Tentacle to install applications to? (/home/Octopus/Applications):
Enter the port that this Tentacle will listen on (10933):
Enter the thumbprint of the Octopus Server: ######
The following configuration commands will be run to configure Tentacle:
sudo /opt/octopus/tentacle/Tentacle create-instance --instance “Tentacle” --config “/etc/octopus/Tentacle/tentacle-Tentacle.config”
sudo /opt/octopus/tentacle/Tentacle new-certificate --instance “Tentacle” --if-blank
sudo /opt/octopus/tentacle/Tentacle configure --instance “Tentacle” --app “/home/Octopus/Applications” --port 10933 --noListen False --reset-trust
sudo /opt/octopus/tentacle/Tentacle configure --instance “Tentacle” --trust #####
sudo /opt/octopus/tentacle/Tentacle service --install --start --instance “Tentacle”
Press enter to continue…
