Hi Everyone,

I am using Splunk enterprise MSI file in my own windows laptop. So for practice i would like to install Splunk in Linux environment in same machine.

As we know we can use putty or third party tools to run Linux in windows at that point of time we need to install Splunk again. Is it possible?

Or

Do I need to uninstall Splunk in windows(.exe) file in order to install through Linux?

Hi @Atchyuth_P,

to install Splunk on a Unix system, you need a Unix System, even if on a VM.

In other words, you can run on a Windows system a virtual machine (using VM-Ware or othes) with a Linux operative system.

Then, you can access this Linux system by VM console or Putty.

Anyway, the Splunk installation is very easy also on Linux systems: instead to run the msi file, you have to upload the installation file in the linux system and run thee commands:

rpm -i splunk.... 
cd /opt/splunk/bin
./splunk start --accept-license

For more infos, you can see at https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.2.2/Installation/InstallonLinux

Ciao.

You should be able to install another instance of Splunk in a pseudo-Linux environment using a .tgz file, but I doubt the .rpm would work.  In either case, it's unlikely the program will run.

Can you stand up an AWS Linux instance to practice on?
