Install the universal forwarder on HP-UX

Important: Splunk does not offer an installation package for Splunk Enterprise on HP-UX. There is a universal forwarder installation package for HP-UX version 11i v3.

To use Splunk Enterprise on HP-UX, you must download an older version of the Splunk software. See the previous releases page.

Basic installation

To install the universal forwarder on an HP-UX system, expand the tar file with GNU tar into an appropriate directory. The default installation directory is /opt/splunkforwarder.

When you install with the tar file:

  • The forwarder does not create the splunk user automatically. If you want the forwarder to run as a specific user, you must create the user manually.
  • Be sure the disk partition has enough space to hold the uncompressed volume of the data you plan to keep indexed.

Next steps

Now that you have installed the Splunk universal forwarder, visit the Universal Forwarder manual to:
