How can I get a minimum Splunk Stream setup going for DNS?

All,

I am looking at the splunkstream docs here and there is a lot to get this doing. Really all I need at this point in time it to capture the DNS traffic off 10 Windows DNS servers.

I am guessing I can just drop Splunk_TA_stream on the Windows servers which have UFs installs and enable inputs.conf for DNS traffic, right? How would I go about that? Docs seem to assume I am using my Search head cluster as some sort of command and control center. I don't think I can get away with that at this time. Just need the DNS sniffing of the sever NIC.
