Hello,

We are going to install a new splunk installation on a Linux machine. We would like to migrate settings and data from the old Windows server.

Can you point us in the right direction?

One Answer:

you can absolutely migrate your data if your Windows instance is from 4.2 or later, just use the procedure here--use the first half of the *Nix procedure and the 2nd half of the Windows one: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Admin/Moveanindex

it might be easiest to hand-move all the config content in /local/ one file at a time to make sure you switch the direction of the slashes etc, but all the configs are the same (except for your inputs, of course).
