Hi,

Server/VM Used: Linux VM ver3.4.0+ (via Bash utility running on windows 10)

I am installing a universal forwarder(Splunk Enterprise)

Steps Completed:
Step 1 (Successful): Install Splunk Enterprise using the command - tar xvzf splunkforwarder-6.5.2-67571ef4b87d-linux-2.6-x86_64 -C /opt
Step 2 (Error): Start Splunk Enterprise using ./splunk start --accept-license

The error is:

This appears to be your first time running this version of Splunk.

Splunk> Like an F-18, bro.
