Updating Splunk (version 4.2.4)

To update your Splunk server the process takes no more than 15 minutes. Here is the process:

Back up the server as always and if you did the installation as I described in my previous post this setup will work perfectly:

wget -O splunk-4.2.4-110225-Linux-x86_64.tgz 'http://www.splunk.com/index.php/download_track?file=4.2.4/splunk/linux/splunk-4.2.4-110225-Linux-x86_64.tgz&ac=&wget=true&name=wget&typed=releases'

/opt/splunk/bin/splunk stop

cd /home/user

mv splunk-4.1.7-95063-Linux-x86_64.tgz /opt/

tar zxfp splunk-4.1.7-95063-Linux-x86_64.tgz

/opt/splunk/bin/splunk start

After that just agree to the terms and test out the new functions and features of 4.2.4. Enjoy!
