Installation

Can you automate selecting the device type and pointing to the license server in installing SPLUNK on Linux?

Path Finder

I have a python script for installing SPLUNK on Linux. the script is unzipping the tar file, setting the ownership, setting the boot start and starting splunk. Is it possible to automate selecting the device type and pointing to license server?

Thanks!

You can put a server.conf file (or better yet an app containing a server.conf file) that sets the license server with:

[license]
master_uri = [self|<uri>]
* An example of <uri>: <scheme>://<hostname>:<port>

Referenced from: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.1.1/Admin/Serverconf

You can use python to check the hostname or another variable to check if the Splunk role would require a License Master.
