Splunk Heavy forwarder(AIX) and Enterprise(Linux) version compatibility


Hi All,


Can someone please assist me. Presently I have Heavy forwarder in AIX ver 6.1 sending data to Indexers in Linux ver 7.3.0. Now I am upgrading Splunk instances on Both the OS. My concern is will Linux Indexers on ver 8.0.4 support Heavy forwarder in AIX. Presently I have no issue but I am worried once I upgrade to 8.0.4


PS :Splunk Enterprise doesn't support AIX anymore.
