We are currently at v2.1.2 of Splunk DB Connect running on our heavy forwarder in a distributed environment. I want to upgrade to eventually get to version 3.0.1 but the upgrade path says to upgrade to 2.4.0 then migrate to 3.0.1 (I'm assuming because of the config file changes and the migration scripts). I don't see any information for going to 2.4.0 from 2.1.2 though. In Manage Apps next to 2.1.2, it has a hyperlink to update to 3.0.1 but I know I don't want to do that because i have to stop at 2.4.0 on the way.
Do I just install app from file to upgrade to 2.4.0? I've tar'd up the Splunk DB Connect directory in case something goes wrong.
