  1. Back up dbx folder to a new directory
  2. Upgrade splunk version 6.1.4 to 6.2
  3. Check Settings—>Data Inputs —> Forwarded Inputs section appeared
  4. Stop splunk
  5. Restore dbx folder
  6. Restart splunk
  7. Check Settings--> Data Inputs —> Forwarded Inputs section disappeared
  8. Remove dbx folder and restart splunk
  9. Install db connect fresh from apps version 1.1.4
  10. Check settings —> Data Inputs —Forwarded Inputs section disappeared
