TIPS & TRICKS

Telling Splunk to not phone home for update info.

(2.1.1 only)

We’ve had a few people ask for this. Its going to be in the documentation eventually, but until then here is how you do it.

Edit $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/myinstall/search.xml

Change :

<updateCheckerBaseURL>http://quickdraw.splunk.com/js/</updateCheckerBaseURL> <updateCheckerBaseURL>0</updateCheckerBaseURL>

(2.1)

$SPLUNK_HOME/share/splunk/search/static/js/update_checker_pro.js.

At the top of the file, and within that same setup function, comment out these two lines:
createUpdateCheckerScriptlet();
setTimeout(’possiblyFallBackToCannotConnectMessage()’, 5000);
