Splunk Enterprise

How to find out which installation method I used in a previous deployment for Linux?

I want to check how Splunk was deployed in our environment in the past. Whether it is done using tgz file or rpm/dpkg method?

Our environment is a Linux environment.

Can someone help me out on this?

Hi
You should check if your package manager’s internal db has this. E.g in RH you could do a query rpm -qif /opt/splunk/bin/splunk and see if it return anything. If it returns then you must verify that version numbers are same than in manifest file have on your splunk home.

You could see if splunk is installed by dpkg by

dpkg -l | egrep -l
