Upgrade heavy and light forwarders

This topic discusses how to upgrade heavy and light forwarders.

To upgrade a heavy or light forwarder, upgrade the Splunk Enterprise instance that supports it. There are no specific or additional instructions required when performing an upgrade on a heavy or light forwarder other than confirming that forwarding continues to work after the upgrade.

See "How to upgrade Splunk Enterprise" in the Installation manual for installation instructions and tips.
