BTW... I am running Splunk on a LINUX machine using the SplunkTAWindows version 4.7.3 on the Windows machine I am monitoring. It is a standalone machine running stuff that I need to keep an eye on and is not a member AD.
You cannot run the Splunk App for Windows Infrastructure on Splunk Free. It must run on Splunk Enterprise.
Is that something new in Version 1.1.1??? Previous versions worked and I bet that this one would as well if there was a way to assign the new role created by the install to the admin user.
