I have recently upgraded by Splunk Enterprise instance for my Heavy Forwarder server from Version 18.104.22.168 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.
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 22.214.171.124
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.
