Splunk Phantom repositories and signing keys packages

You will need to have the correct source repositories and the corresponding signing keys installed on your Splunk Phantom instance or cluster nodes in order to upgrade.

For a clustered deployment, install these repositories on cluster nodes that run Splunk Phantom. You do not need to install them on a Shared Services server, or servers providing external services to your Splunk Phantom cluster, such as load balancers or proxy servers, PostgreSQL database server, or a GlusterFS fileshare.

For privileged Splunk Phantom deployments with internet access

Use these commands to install the correct source repositories and signing keys package when the instructions call for you to install them. Replace the variables with the version numbers for version of Splunk Phantom to which you are upgrading.

For example, if you are upgrading from version 4.8.24304 to version 4.9.39220, and your instance is on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, use the following command:

rpm -Uvh https://repo.phantom.us/phantom/4.9/base/7Server/x86_64/phantom_repo-4.9.39220-1.x86_64.rpm

For unprivileged deployments, or deployments with limited internet access the repository and signing key contents are delivered in the upgrade tar file.

rpm -Uvh https://repo.phantom.us/phantom/<major version.minor version>/base/6/x86_64/phantom_repo-<major version.minor version.build number>-1.x86_64.rpm
