Is there a command to downgrade from Splunk version 6.2 to 6.0 on Unix?

Contributor

Currently I am using Splunk version 6.2 and I would like to move back to Splunk 6.0.
Is there a command I can execute in Unix to downgrade?

Hi neelamssantosh,

From the docs http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.2.2/Installation/Upgradeto6.2onUNIX :

 Splunk Enterprise does not provide a means of downgrading to previous versions. If you need to revert to an older Splunk release, just reinstall it.

Hope that helps ...

cheers, MuS

We can, by using the command,

rpm -Uvh --oldpackage filename

I 've already done for the quiter of 6.1.4 with a 6.1.1 using a .rpm package and it works corectly
If you are using a package manager, such as RPM,
Mr neelamssantosh do like the show in his commentary for it is very correct .
rpm -Uvh --oldpackage filename

You could do it using yum.
yum downgrade PackageName.rpm,
