Splunk Software Distribution with - System Center Configuration Manager - SCCM

Path Finder

Did anybody already distribute Splunk as a package using Microsoft "System Center Configuration Manager" SCCM ? I do not know this product but have to create a package definition for distributing Splunk Forwarders to Win Servers.

Are there any experiences and probably an example Package Definition File available, you would like to share here ?

Thanks a lot, Meno

I wonder where in this file I have to put the Forwarder specific parameters as described here:
