How Do You Install Splunk Enterprise on a RHEL Server?

Problem scenario
You want to install Splunk Enterprise on your RedHat Enterprise Linux server.  How do you do this?

Solution
You can get a free trial here if you input the data the Splunk company requires and can agree to the terms that they have.  Use an SFTP client (e.g., WinSCP)  to move it to your server.

From the Linux server run this:  sudo yum -y localinstall splunk-*

Run this command: sudo /opt/splunk/bin/splunk version

Read the License Agreement.  If you agree when you get to the end, enter "y" and press enter.  Verify you have Splunk installed with this command: sudo /opt/splunk/bin/splunk version
