Hi Team,

I have recently upgraded by Splunk Enterprise instance for my Heavy Forwarder server from  Version 7.3.1.1 to version 8.1.2.

So when i navigated to /opt/splunk/bin directory and ran the command as "splunk version" i can able to see the output as latest version and in GUI also it is showing up the latest version.

Output:

Splunk 8.1.2 (build 545206cc9f70)

 

But when i checked the /opt/splunk/etc/splunk-launch.conf

I can able to see the older version details present and not updated with the latest version.

# Version 7.3.1.1

 

Whereas if i checked the /opt/splunk/etc/splunk-launch.conf.default i can able to see with latest version .

# Version 8.1.2

 

So i want to know why the file splunk-launch.conf is not updated with latest version? and also is there any way to fix it.

FWIW, the splunk-launch.conf file in my 8.1.2 instance says "# Version 6.6.2".  Not that it matters.  The version string is just a comment and the content of the file hasn't changed in ages.
