Hunk User Manual

Special instructions for upgrades to 6.3 from versions 6.1 or later

The package that you install for Hunk functionality has been renamed for 6.1. If you are upgrading from a previous version of Splunk and Hunk release and are updating to 6.1 or later, you must take the following steps to accommodate the new naming convention:

1. Stop your existing Splunk instance:

splunk stop

2. Find the folder for your existing installation, labelled "Hunk." Rename it to "Splunk:"

mv hunk splunk

3. Unzip the new Splunk .tgz file:

tar -xvf splunk-6.xxxxxxxxx.tgz

4. Start Hunk and accept the license:

splunk start

Once you have completed the above steps, you do not need to repeat the process for future releases.

Note:You may also need to update your search heads, see Upgrade Hunk
