If i wanted to disable Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Windows on all Universal Forwarders (6.4.4) and only use my own app to collect Windows logs, what would be the best way to do this? I was going to make a directory in deployment apps named the same thing as the app on the UF's "splunk_ta_windows" and set it to disable in app.conf.
This means that in your installation procedure you flagged the Windows flags.
So, create a Server Class containing all your windows server, insert in it a disabled version of splunk_ta_windows and deploy it.
This should disable your TA.
