Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Windows: How to disable this add-on on all Universal Forwarders?

Contributor

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.

any thoughts?

Hi sbattista09,
go in your Deployment Server and delete splunk_ta_windows from all your Server Classes.
Bye.

Hi sbattista09
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.
