Troubleshoot the Splunk Add-on for vCenter Logs
The Splunk Add-on for vCenter Logs isn't receiving data
The Splunk Add-on for vCenter Logs isn't receiving data.
If you've configured vCenter Server 5.0 but no data is coming in, the vCenter Server 5.0 and 5.1 are missing WSDL files that are required for Splunk Add-on for VMware to make API calls to vCenter server.
Resolve this issue by installing the missing VMware WSDL files as documented in the vSphere Web Services SDK WSDL workaround in the VMware documentation.
Note that the program data folder is typically a hidden folder.
