How to install *Nix app

Explorer

Hi gang,
I have been trying to install the newer Splunk App for Unix and Linux (5.0.0) on my Splunk recievers. I tried "upgrading" the Nix 4.6 and also tried to install it by itself. The download file from Splunk is a zip file, I was expecting a .tgz file. When I try to install or upgrade from the Splunk GUI, it just gives me a /etc ? app. This directory called etc does get loaded under /opt/splunk/etc/apps. I am not sure how to get this to work. I have NIX 4.6 working fine and have the Splunk_TA_nix running fine on my forwarders.

I am running Splunk 6.0 on my receivers and forwarders.

You need to extract the contents of the zip. You cant install it directly or you will see the /etc app listed.

I have had the same problem.

Turns out: The Splunk for *NIX app version 5.0.0 is broken.

The fix is to install version 5.0.1 -- You may have to manually delete the "...etc/apps/etc" folder.

I realize this is an old posting, but still want to point out the problem with 5.0.0.
