Installation

Is there any way to bypass the EULA on first-time run after install/upgrade?

on apt-get upgrade or apt-get install, splunk does NOT stop/start it's service.

that's fine, but if an operator misses starting it again before reboot - the whole machine will hang on boot.. waiting for you input.. with or without ssh starting up first. which leaves you with a remote machine hung and inaccessible.

if splunk has installed it's init.d to startup on boot, can we have a switch to accept the EULA? or perhaps the EULA should persist between versions (as much as possible).

Yes there is, and it's documented here

Your startup command becomes ./splunk start --accept-license
