I have setup Oracle Linux on my VM to collect logs using Universal forwarder. UF not able to start service with error
" bash: ./splunk cannot execute binary file".
I did try using all the available linux versions for the forwarder installation, still the same error.
UF version: 7.2.3 (64bit)
OS: Oracle Linux 6.9 (64bit)
Help point out if I am missing anything important.
Can you please check whether you have downloaded correct version of Splunk Forwarder. You can check splunk executable whether it is 32-bit or 64-bit using command
file $SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk and also check your OS version using
uname -a both must be 64-bit (I know you have provided this info in your question but just double checking)
