Hi, this is Natasha.
We're on module three. We'll be installing Splunk on windows. Using the gooey.
Using the command line is also an option. Instructions are available in the supplemental materials for this course
t it started.
We're gonna go to splint dot com
and you'll need to log in in order to download ***.
So once you've logged in, you can go to products
free trials and downloads,
and then scroll down on the page and pick between Splunk free and ***. Enterprise,
you go ahead and click on Splunk free.
And if you notice up here, it's directing us to these flunk enterprise download page.
Well, you done Lis Blanc free. You basically get a 60 day trial of splint enterprise.
That then changes to Splunk free after that time period. In an earlier video, we talked about some of the differences, but there are limitations even for this trial version.
So we'll scroll down here
and I'm gonna want to download this one. But if you don't see the option you want, there are older releases and you may need to check your system requirements too.
You just can't click download now
and we'll get a pop up here that we can just
save the installation package.
I went ahead and already did that to save us some time. So I've got in my downloads folder here just getting double. Click that
and we'll run the installation. I'm gonna click,
We'll go to customize options. So this is where it's going to put Splunk.
There are arguments for removing the thing, keeping as a shorter path. But I just can't leave as the default for now.
And, um, installer as the local system account
and come up with a user name and password.
Go ahead and start the installation
Really installed. I'm gonna go ahead and click finish here.
Pretty simple right
now. I mentioned how the *** fuller structure is really useful. Toe learn.
Um, so when we installed this,
it went under program files.
if we want to, we can go in and check
the server name that it's looking at. So the name of this host
is being used.
Has that? So we could go to a local host Port 8000. Ah, that's the default port used for it. Or we could type in, um, the name of this host for that,
and we'll get to our log and window. I can use the account I just set up.
We'll get logged into our brand new installation of ***
and something else. Aiken D'oh! Just to show you.
So I have this browser. This is on my computer, not on the V m.
And I'm just gonna go to the seam site.
I'm also able to log in. You may need a play with your firewall on network settings in order to be able to talk between machines
outside of the scope of this course.
But here we are. Here's our
In our next video, we're gonna be installing a universal surf order to get data into this to start working with.
Thanks for watching.
