Hi,

Splunk is consistently removing old link releases from their webpage, the "server folder" remains the same, but the public links to old releases get removed as new releases are released. I suppose this is for security reasons because it's very old unsupported versions, and bla bla.

So basically if you want to download old versions the pattern is the same than with  any other download:

https://download.splunk.com/products/universalforwarder/releases/[version]/[OS]/[file] 

Kernel 2.6 amd64: 

[file] splunkforwarder-6.3.0-aa7d4b1ccb80-linux-2.6-amd64.deb

https://download.splunk.com/products/universalforwarder/releases/6.3.0/linux/splunkforwarder-6.3.0-a... 

Windows 32bits

[file] splunkforwarder-6.3.0-aa7d4b1ccb80-x86-release.msi

https://download.splunk.com/products/universalforwarder/releases/6.3.0/windows/splunkforwarder-6.3.0... 

Windows 64bits

[file] splunkforwarder-6.3.0-aa7d4b1ccb80-x64-release.msi

https://download.splunk.com/products/universalforwarder/releases/6.3.0/windows/splunkforwarder-6.3.0... 

To sum up,  you can download whatever you want as long as you know the exact name of the file, every release has an identifier, for example 6.3.0 is> aa7d4b1ccb80, so its not really easy to "guess" the file:

@jkat54  shared some useful file names, check them out!!

 

Hope this helps guys!

Cheers,

Clara.

I had links in my history (which gave me filenames) for the last few Windows x64 ones, so as a very temporary workaround if you need any of the below, here's a bastardized wget link made non-wget.

6.3.2 Windows x64
https://www.splunk.com/bin/splunk/DownloadActivityServlet?architecture=x86_64&platform=windows&versi...

6.3.0 Windows x64
https://www.splunk.com/bin/splunk/DownloadActivityServlet?architecture=x86_64&platform=windows&versi...

6.2.8 windows x64
https://www.splunk.com/bin/splunk/DownloadActivityServlet?architecture=x86_64&platform=windows&versi...

Hi,

the page disappeared. I was downloading older universal forwarders some days ago.

http://www.splunk.com/page/previous_releases just has the full versions available.

Can someone from Splunk please highlight that internally? I need different older forwarder versions as well very soon.

Not only has the page disappeared, but the files have as well. Please fix ASAP!
