Can't download license for trial

New Member

Hi!

I'm trying to download the license file enttrial.lic for the Splunk Enterprise trial version (older versions), but the link doesn't seem to work. I get the message "Oops! 404 Error:Page not found". I've tried downloading through the last versions of Firefox and Chrome - same thing. Any ideas?

Hi tsvetanar

You do not need to explicitly download and install a separate license key for Enterprise Trial version.
Just download Splunk Enterprise and install and your 30 day Trial License would automatically start.

Hm, thanks, but under the section for older versions of Windows there's a note stating I need to additionally download the enttrial.lic file, because the license for older versions ofOS (apart from Linux) have expired. I'm with Windows 7, so I need this file. My installation of the Splunk Enterprise trial ends prematurely and after numerous checks, the expired license is a good candidate for a reason why the installation won't finish.

With Windows 7 Splunk has discontinued the support since its 6.5.x release.

You can check it from the System Requirements page of Splunk docs -
OS Support with latest release of Splunk -
https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.3.0/Installation/Systemrequirements

OS Support with 6.4.x release of Splunk -
https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.4.11/Installation/Systemrequirements

Can you confirm which version of Splunk are you trying to download and install ? You need to go for 6.4.11:
splunk-6.4.11-0691276baf18-x64-release.msi
Get it from - https://www.splunk.com/page/previous_releases#x86_64windows

Please accept as answer if this responds your query

I had the same problem on WindowsI was able to use the license from a newer trial version 7.3.1 with my 6.6.5 version. I spun up a VM and copied from %SPLUNK_HOME%\etc\licenses\download-trial\enttrial.lic then restarted Splunkd service. I'm still working on setup, but haven't run into any issues yet.

I have the same problem...
Just want to practise for bots and follow here using botsv1
https://github.com/splunk/botsv1#splunk-indexed

This doc said "Different versions of the software may or may not work properly." and I am using Splunk Enterprise free trial 6.5.2, but after start splunk, I was told "There are no valid Splunk Enterprise Trial licenses installed. You will be prompted to install a license if you choose this option."

So, which version should I use for the botsv1?
