Hi.
00:01
In this video, we'll walk through installing *** on Lenox via the command line. The next video covers a Windows insulation if you want the other options, or if you'd like to follow our instructions for these videos, please check out the supplemental materials for this course
00:18
to start off,
00:19
we'll go to the *** website. You'll need to be signed into downloads, flunk. After that,
00:25
go to products
00:27
and then free trials and downloads.
00:30
From here. You can pick if you want to download sponge enterprisers *** free.
00:36
Now, when I click on *** free something, you might notice that it takes me to the site first bunk Enterprise.
00:44
What happens here is that you get a free trial of *** enterprise, and if you don't make a purchase, it turns and display free, which has some of the limitations we talked about in a nerd earlier video,
00:55
such as restricted user options and some of the things
01:00
from here will select her download
01:02
for this video will pick the linen 64 bit tar installation package,
01:07
but something you can dio if you look down on the bottom. Here, there are options for older and other down loans. So if you don't see what you want up here, there are lots of other options.
01:22
So once you click on download now,
01:26
you should get a pop up to download the file.
01:30
You also see that this page has a lot of useful documentations and even instructional videos here,
01:38
if you wanna just download this file and run through the installation Ah, that's fine. But I'm gonna hit, cancel and do something a little bit different
01:47
if you only want to work from the command line. This page gives you an easy option for the W get you'd enter
01:53
right up here.
01:56
You can just copy and paste this into the command line.
02:00
This seems a little bit of a roundabout way to do it. But if, for example, you're just sshh to machine, it might come in handy. So I'm gonna do this
02:09
and then, ah, jump in
02:14
to the terminal here
02:15
and just pay set in.
02:19
Now I've already downloaded, so I'm going to skip it here.
02:23
But,
02:23
um,
02:28
we've got this
02:29
insulation package. No.
02:32
The next step is to unharmed This file something you'll thank yourself later for is using the default directory for *** which is up directory. It makes your life so much easier for following instructions and keeping track of where you're at when you do this. So in order to do this, I'm going thio
02:53
type in Tar
02:54
XV ZF
02:57
and then copy and paste this package name
03:06
and then do you see
03:08
and opt.
03:15
And then afterward, out X rayed in the file here, the next thing we need to do is just start it.
03:23
So sport commands are located in the bin folder on their opts for been if you do it like we just did.
03:30
So you started. We'll just go opt. Splunk been Splunk start now, you could just enter that. But I'm gonna add in a another step and hit and type and accept license just to save myself some scrolling.
03:46
And now I'll need to put in a username and come up with a password
03:55
firm the password
04:00
and then we should be good to go.
04:02
One thing you'll notice is right here. It says the Splunk web interface is that
04:08
http vacay 1000. Um, that's my machine name.
04:15
So if we were to open up a browser,
04:17
we could just type that in
04:23
okay,
04:29
and here we have our
04:32
live *** we can log into
04:36
and you started with
04:43
Perfect.
04:45
Another step that could be in the instructions. Um,
04:49
it's setting. Spoke to start at boot time. I'm gonna leave this out, but the instructions are in the supplemental materials. If you don't set it the next time you log in, you'll just run in the same command minus the except license part to get it started.
05:05
Um, and and further videos will be spending most of our time in the Web, Consul and go more in depth with searches and navigating that.
05:15
But thanks for watching. And the next video, we'll do this installation on a Windows machine.
