Hi,

Can you try :

sudo rpm -ivh /opt/splunk-6.5.3-36937ad027d4-linux-2.6-x86_64.rpm --force 

Also if this doesn't work try installing tar file instead rpm.

What is the error that you are getting? Was the file downloaded correctly?

Try running the following command.
wget -O splunkforwarder-7.0.2-03bbabbd5c0f-linux-2.6-x8664.rpm 'https://www.splunk.com/bin/splunk/DownloadActivityServlet?architecture=x8664&platform=linux&version=7.0.2&product=universalforwarder&filename=splunkforwarder-7.0.2-03bbabbd5c0f-linux-2.6-x86_64.rpm&wget=true'
