they are able to send the data through syslog server but issue is every thing is coming as file only. but Splunk_TA_vcenter component is expecting three different inputs directory and props based on the directory and type of file , it is dividing the data in to different sourcetype
but with out any knowledge of data how can i differentiate as expected by TA .

This feature is provided in the newer version of the app which will be released in few weeks. In that, you don't need to configure inputs. You will get more detail from the Splunk docs.
