Hi All,

I am just posting a solution to an issue I have had with two upgrades for Splunk Enterprise Security. First issue was when upgrading From 3.3 -> 4.0 and now 4.0 -> 4.1.

Linux Example:

  1. Copy your install (can be left as tgz file) to an accessible location. /tmp/esinstall/splunk-enterprise-security_410.tgz
  2. Open up a terminal console and change to your $SPLUNKHOME\bin directory.
  3. Issue the following command ./splunk install app /tmp/einstall/splunk-enterprise-security_410.tgz -update 1

Windows Example:

  1. Copy your install (can be left as tgz file) to an accessible location. C:\SplunkUpgrade\splunk-enterprise-security_410.tgz
  2. Open a powershell prompt and change to your $SPLUNKHOME\bin directory.
  3. Issue the following command .\splunk.exe install app C:\SplunkUpgrade\splunk-enterprise-security_410.tgz -update 1

Then open your ES install and follow the prompts and it will work :).
