I am setting up a new indexer in our corporate splunk cluster. I am planning to use the identical version of splunk enterprise that we currently are using on other host members of the cluster.
I have the splunk installer .rpm I believe was used to set up other hosts previously.
I want to make sure it is a valid .rpm as downloaded from splunk.com
I was unable to find a reference list for MD5 sums of earlier releases of splunk on the splunk.com website.
Here is what I have and the MD5 sum of the installer file.
Can anyone tell me if the MD5 sum above suggests that the installer file is legitimate?
MD5 (splunk-7.1.5-fd4da3d4caf1-linux-2.6-x86_64.rpm) = e5ce0f7bcd686f5ee315147c16e546a4
Your installer is fine.
However, you should not trust anyone just because they are saying this in the discussion, so here is how you can get the correct checksum yourself:
DavidHourani: hmmm, nice link, but how can anyone trust it is actually a thing? 🙂 You brought me to pretty amazing idea: I'll answer all questions here by something like "No matter what you ask, never trust any answers, only trust yourself!". Victory in Karma contest will be mine in no time! 🙂
