Get a diag to backup your existing configurations just in case:

$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk diag

Then just install Splunk right over the top of your existing Splunk with a different user. Your stuff will still be there.

What exactly do you mean by "new account" in this case?

I still don't get how that is related to installing Splunk. But if woodcock's answer solves your question, that's great 🙂

hi! @FrankVl sorry for the confusion, but what I mean is transferring files from one instance to another.
