Deployment Architecture

OS upgrade


Hi All ,

We have 1 indexer, 1 SH and 1 DS . We are  planning for an OS upgrade (OS RHEL 6 to OL 7)  .All the these devices are on the Cloud . Can someone help me what are the steps to be taken from Splunk perspective during this upgrade . What are the checks to be done and is there any pattern like first indexer , then DS and then SH to be followed .

What to do in a fail over .

Splunk is not getting upgraded as of now . We are keeping the same splunk version 7.3.

I have already read this article 

but i am not upgrading splunk here .

Hi @rahulhari88,

there aren't special requirements for your operation, you can follow the order you like in upgrade.

Your Splunk 7.3.0 is compatible with every Linux with 3.x and 4.x Kernel version (

Anyway, take in attention to upgrade as soon as possible also Splunk.
