Upgrading from 4.3.3 to 4.3.4

Contributor

I have installed 4.3.3 version which leads me an error while using "append" command.

Could you please let me know how I can upgrade my splunk from 4.3.3 to 4.3.4 so that all the indexing , all the data imported, transformation should not be effected.

Thanks a lot for your understanding !

Kindly help !!

The upgrade from 4.3.3 to 4.3.4 is seamless; I haven't encountered any issue yet after upgrading over 100 systems, whether search head, indexer, or forwarder. The specific steps to upgrade your system depends upon the OS you're using and whether or not you're using native packages (RPM, .deb) etc on the Unix platforms.

However, the basic gist is: download 4.3.4, either use native tools like 'rpm -U' or just click the (Windows / Mac) installer. The first time you start the new Splunk, it will ask you to re-confirm the license, and ask whether you want to migrate your existing configuration. This doesn't touch your indexed data. It will all be present after the upgrade.

You might also consider "accepting" answers that work for you, so that others with the same problem can know whether the solution is a good one.
