Dear all,

I have tried to run slibclean and re run upgrade again. but it still failed.

 

 also, i have try to run 'splunk validate files' .

Do you have the AIX Toolbox for Linux Applications installed?  See https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Forwarder/8.0.6/Forwarder/Installanixuniversalforwarder#Instal...

I believe the slibclean utility modified some Splunk binaries so now they fail the integrity check.  Re-install Splunk to correct that.
