Installation

How can I bypass the License Agreement on startup after a new install?

I built a scripted process to perform an upgrade. When i issue the splunk start command I get the license agreement and have to answer a few questions. Is there a way to bypass this? I have an enterprise license and I am on linux going from 6.6.3 to 7.0.4.

Here is the message I see. This forces me to run the process interactively and I would like to make this a scheduled process
command: /trvapps/splunk/bin/splunk start
SPLUNK SOFTWARE LICENSE AGREEMENT

Thanks!

Thank you, that worked!

UF Upgrade docs say to just do this:

  • To accept the license and begin the upgrade without viewing the changes (answer 'y'):
      $SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk start --accept-license --answer-yes


your ./ got my version (8.1.1) to work performing it in the splunk/bin/ directory
