Is it posible to downgrade Splunk from free version to Splunk enterprise trial version?

Path Finder

Hi,
I was using a Enterprise trial version of Splunk for learning and then started working on a POC, it to me long time as I am new to Splunk and programing and the Splunk trial version expired and I upgraded to free version

Few of the features like alerts, DB connect, real-time searches and Splunk mobile app don't work with it. I want to downgrade again back to the trial version for some important demo's before I buy a license

Is it possible to install a new trial version again on the same machine?

Thanks,
Zubair

UPgrading to the downloaded enterprise trial license from the free license on an existing instance is not supposed to work. You have two options:

  • Talk to your splunk sales rep or partner to get a sales trial license
  • Do the demo on a new instance - can be the same machine.

I uninstalled the existing free version and downloaded and installed a trial version again, I still see some issues around Splunk DB connect as it changes the timestamp of my fresh stream of events to one month ago, Is there any way to check if I am using free or trial version?

That sounds like a separate DB Connect or timestamping issue, do open a new question for that.

To check what license you're on, go to Settings -> Licensing.
