Upgrading uberAgent

When a new version of uberAgent is available you need to do the following in order to update your existing installation.

uberAgent Splunk Indexer and Dashboard Apps

Before upgrading, please make a backup of the following files:

  • $SPLUNK_HOME\etc\apps\uberAgent\lookups\appnameidmapping.csv
  • $SPLUNK_HOME\etc\apps\uberAgent\lookups\hostinfo.csv
  • $SPLUNK_HOME\etc\apps\uberAgent\lookups\hostinfo2.csv

Delete the uberAgent app directories:

  • $SPLUNK_HOME\etc\apps\uberAgent
  • $SPLUNK_HOME\etc\apps\uberAgent_indexer

Install the new versions of the Splunk apps as described here.

Restore the files you backed up in the first step described above, overwriting the default versions of these files that came as part of the download:

  • $SPLUNK_HOME\etc\apps\uberAgent\lookups\appnameidmapping.csv
  • $SPLUNK_HOME\etc\apps\uberAgent\lookups\hostinfo.csv
  • $SPLUNK_HOME\etc\apps\uberAgent\lookups\hostinfo2.csv

uberAgent on the Endpoints

uberAgent's MSI installer has all the logic to upgrade an installation automatically preserving the current settings. Just run the installer again using your deployment method of choice as described here.

Note: Customizations to the configuration made outside of Windows Installer are not retained during an upgrade. Such customizations must be re-applied after the upgrade.
