Getting Data In

Why am I getting error "Couldn't determine $SPLUNK_HOME" trying to install universal forwarder credentials on Sandbox?

appzen
Path Finder

I am trying to install the forwarder credentials on my sandbox and when I follow step 4 and put in my credentials ie:

/opt/splunkforwarder/bin/splunk install app /opt/splunkclouduf.spl -auth admin:changeme

I get the error:

Couldn't determine $SPLUNK_HOME

Perhaps it should be set in environment. I attempted to fix this error by:

export PATH=$PATH:/opt/splunkforwarder/bin

but I still received the same error. How do I continue with installation? Thanks!

or where ever you installed Splunk at
