Hi we are looking to upgrade our distributed splunk environment from 6.1.2 to 6.2.2.
I have been looking at documents regarding this and they all point to the fact that the upgrade has to be done through the OS (i.e., using tar, rpm file and installing it through linux commands).
But I'm being told by my department that this can be achieved using the splunk console as well. I know that you can install apps through the console, but I'm not sure how to upgrade splunk through the console.
Can anyone please advise? If you know the correct steps, can you please share?

Splunkd must be stoped before any upgrade. Means, you can't upgrade splunk, through the console
