I believe i'm on the most current version, I'm not clear on why I am getting these messages.. When I click on the links, it takes me to the general products screen of Splunk. When I clear the messages, they come back on next restart or login.
Question is - Do I need to upgrade something? If not, how do I stop the messages from coming up?
I'd be interested in knowing if there's a way to disable the notifications as well.
I can confirm upgrading removed them but previously, everytime I deleted them, they would come back and they would also pop up on "user" role accounts which was not what I wanted. I just ending up upgrading to 6.5.2...
Did anyone ever get an answer to this? I dont want my production search head showing that we need to upgrade while we're still testing the next version in dev environments.
In web.conf, under the
[settings] stanza, configure:
updateCheckerBaseURL = 0
I don't think this is working!
Agreed. Have it on my SHC too, and still see have Notification.
Is the setting configured on every SH in your SHC under $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/web.conf? Did you perform a rolling restart? I have the setting configured on my 6.5.3 SHC and do not see the message there. Also, the docs for 6.6.3 still indicate this is the correct method.
updateCheckerBaseURL = http://quickdraw.Splunk.com/js/ ... * Setting updateCheckerBaseURL to 0 will stop the SplunkWeb from pinging Splunk.com for new versions of itself.
I also updated all my infrastructure with this, for whatever reason SHC members though they have the config (verified members via btool) they still show the message.
Actually I believe its a browser cache'ing issue, I just hoped on a different computer and it is indeed gone, woohoo.
