Im a bit new to deploying forwarders on endpoints i manage (im not new to splunk)-
Many guides i see (including the install instructions for this sysmon TA), state that you should deploy this TA onto your forwarders.
To do this, the user will need to manually create a outputs.conf file (w indexer IP/dns) and place it in: \TA-microsoft-sysmon\default\
So why is there not a default/blank output.conf file located in \TA-microsoft-sysmon\default\ , from the start?
(or even a blank file, with just a #nothing line? I get that the devs dont know the IP / DNS of our indexers).
(im not complaining about this , im asking this incase im missing something and so that i can better understand, as it would seem to me a majority of users of this TA will be deploying it on forwarders as well as their indexer- so im wondering why there is not a outputs.conf "place holder").
