upgrade path of the Forwarders from 4.2.2 to most current.

Can I upgrade splunk forwarder 4.2.2 directly to 6.0 or do I have to upgrade to 4.3 first?

You should be able to upgrade directly. Whenever you start Splunk, it scans your configuration files and will point out any problems. So just watch the startup sequence carefully and you should be fine.

Of course, always make a backup before updating, just in case!
