Beginner at splunk here, can I add custom stanzas to windows -add -on to collect server roles data, or should i add that in the
inputs.conf at the universal forwarder local level or to the inputs.conf file of the windows add on.?
my aim is to just collect log files like IIS,certificate services and so on.
q2. Inorder to monitor windows host information from other universal forwarders, do i have to intall splunk enterprise on windows only.
can i not intall it on ubuntu, forward the relevant data using universal forwarders to the splunk enterprise which is on windows ?
