I'm wondering if is possible to run the universal forwarder with an AIX 5.3. The download page says that only 6.1 and 7.1 are supported, but documentation says otherwise.
Anyone using a 6.1.3 forwarder on an AIX 5.3?
The documentation you're referring to (http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.1.3/Installation/Systemrequirements#Unix_operating_sys... ) is correct and universal forwarders on AIX 5.3 will still be supported for 6.1.3.
Yes. AIX 5.3 is deprecated, but still supported.
