Unable to install splunk on linux

New Member


I tried wget command to install splunk on azure cloud Linux VM. I found it is not installed in gzip format.

After running wget it gives me splunk-8.0.5-a1a6394cc5ae-linux-2.6-amd64.deb file but I am unable to tar that package.

I am assuming during installation package was not downloaded in .tar extension.

When I run 

tar xvzf splunk_package_name.tgz

It says No such file or directory. Seems it is not in gzip format.

Can someone help me out on this!!

I think you got wget URL after choosing .deb file. First you click on .tar in downloads that will give you link for .tar which you can extract in your linux machine.

If this helps, give a like below.
