Hello everyone, I'm having some real trouble even getting my Splunk forwarder to install onto my CentOS 8.2 on a RHEL 64 bit VM. I'm using rpm and following along with the install guide on Splunk's website, but for the life of me I can't get the file to install. I used wget to install my free version of splunkforwarder, and that completed successfully. The file was downloaded to my /opt/ directory, and at first the permissions were read write only, so I changed those to executable, and still rpm won't recognize the installed software as an rpm package. I have also set SELinux to permissive with no success.
I just thought I would ask in case anyone is seeing something I haven't seen or has run into this before.
