We have
-Windows Deployment server
-Several Linux client servers.

We want to
-deploy Splunk_TA_nix(*nux add-on) from Windows DS to Linux CS.
-After the deployment, get the cpu, memory data of Linux CS.
-We cannot login Linux CS, so all of the settings should be done in Windows DS.

We have this inputs.conf in Splunk_TA_nix
[script://./bin/top.sh]
interval = 1800
sourcetype = cpu
source = cpu
Also we put this top.sh in bin folder which is contained in Splunk_TA_nix

By far, the deployment is successful, however the data of cpu cannot be get.

We doubt the top.sh cannot be run because of the authority problems.

Is anyone have good idea about is problem?

See http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/ReleaseNotes/Knownissues. You are running into a known issue:

SPL-91648
Forwarder unable to push scripted inputs to a Linux deployment client from a Windows deployment server.

The gist of the issue as I understand it being that the Windows DS is not correctly setting the "execute" bit on scripts when it creates the DS bundle file. You should contact support to see if they have an ETA on a fix, or give up and convert your DS to a Linux machine.
