Version 6.4 of Splunk Enterprise on my linux indexers, after I install the latest Splunk_TA_windows on it I get the following messages. How do I clean this up?:

Hi banderson7, renaming the eventgen.conf file to something like eventgen.conf.bak would clear up most of these messages. Usually eventgen isn't needed, and if you aren't using it then it's just noise.

Please let me know if this answers your question! 😄

Why are you installing the Splunk ta for WINDOWS on a linux device? That's why you're getting these errors. It's not meant to be installed on linux Splunk instances. Try the Splunk ta for linux instead.

To "clean it up" remove the Splunk ta for windows from /opt/splunk_ind/etc/apps/ and restart Splunk. rm -Rf /opt/splunk_ind/etc/apps/splunk_ta_windows and then restarting Splunk should do the trick.

Are you doing this for the "props"? The TA only goes on the windows forwarders to my knowledge and isn't required on the indexers.

Per: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/WindowsAddOn/4.8.3/User/DeploytheSplunkAdd-onforWindowsinadistr...
"
Complete the procedure in "Install the Splunk Add-on for Windows" to place the Splunk Add-on for Windows onto the indexer.
If the indexer is a Windows host and you want to collect Windows data from it, configure the add-on on that host."
It would be helpful to get an idea if the TA was required on the indexers. Do I just need to add the props.conf file?

I'm going with muebels comment then. Delete eventgen.conf and then edit the props.conf to remove that one regex.
