I have uninstalled the collector (ver. splunkforwarder-6.3.0-aa7d4b1ccb80-x64-release.msi) on Server 2012 R2, when I try to reinstall it I get the message "Product: UniversalForwarder -- This version of UniversalForwarder has already been installed on this computer." I uninstalled using add/remove programs, have rebooted, checked the registry for anything Splunk related and cant find anything.
any suggestions ?
Have you deleted the Splunk directory? It may be called "Splunk Universal Forwarder".
Yes, the uninstall removed the directory, however, I think I just fixed the issue. I right clicked on the splunkforwarder-6.3.0-aa7d4b1ccb80-x64-release.msi file and there was an option to Uninstall, which I selected, it looked like it actually was doing something, and I can now run through the install
thank you for your reply
I received same error. Version: splunkforwarder-6.3.0-aa7d4b1ccb80-x64-release.msi.
The right-click and uninstall did not work for me.
I fixed it and was able to install by deleting the following registry key. HKEYCLASSESROOT\Installer\Products\C042F9A1CE44AA641A538C56CC9204B1
