We have Splunk Enterprise v220.127.116.11 and planning to upgrade to v8.1.1. Now, as a pre-requisite, we will upgrade the Splunk_TA_nix v7.0.1 to Splunk_TA_nix v8.2.0 so that it will be compatible to both Splunk Enterprise v18.104.22.168 and v8.1.1.
In our environment, we still have Splunk Universal Forwarders who are in v7.0.4. With this, our question is, if we upgrade the Splunk_TA_nix to v8.2.0, would it still work to Splunk Universal Forwarders v7.0.4?
In Splunkbase, Splunk_TA_nix v8.2.0 is only compatible to Splunk Version v7.2 or later.
