I'm trying to install the App splunk for bind. I have install a trial verison of Splunk on my Mac. I'm just trying to figure out where to install the app. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

When you download the Splunk app it is in a gzipped archive. Copy the file to the following directory:

$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps

$gunzip

$tar xvf *.tar

Now make sure that the permissions are set correctly on the files. Typically you want to make your the user:group setting is the same as the rest of the Splunk files.

On a MAC the $SPLUNK_HOME directory could be in your Applications directory so the apps directory would be in the following location:

/Users//Library/Application Support/Splunk/etc/apps

Hope this helps.

Pro tip: "tar zxvf filename.tar.gz" will tar and gunzip at the same time.

Try installing from inside your splunk manager.

Manager > Apps > Browse Splunkbase for more apps.

Then find it in the list. (break it up by apps, addons, suites on the left)

When you find it, hit 'Install' and everything should be taken care of automagically.
