Hello,

As everyone already knows the splunk commands like ./splunk status it is only possible to do it from the splunk OPT folder

I saw a video where someone executes that splunk status command without being in the Splunk OPT folder, could you tell me how to do it?

Thank you

Hi

in linux there are three options for this. Use full path with command like /opt/splunk/bin/splunk or add that directory to your PATH like PATH=/opt/splunk/bin:${PATH} And third option is make an alias for splunk command which point to full path.

You should read more about using Linux command line to understand those better.
