Hi All,

I am trying to install the universal forwarder on a Tru64 UNIX V5.1B alpha system. Please help me with the steps to achieve the same. Any ideas or suggestions will be much appreciated.

Thanks

I don't believe that there is any version of the forwarder available that will work on that old of a system. HP (HPE) ended all support for Tru64 at the end of 2012.

Unfortunately, the best answer is to upgrade your system to something supportable. Assuming that's not possible, your best bet to get logs to Splunk would be to use syslog from the Tru64 machine to a Splunk syslog target (preferably an intermediate forwarder).

Thanks,

You are absolutely right. That can be the better way to get the logs.
