Hi fazilhussain,

that path is correct. Splunk's installation ships with default settings which are found under $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/default/.
Do not make changes there. Copy the outputs.conf from the default folder to the local folder and make your configurations there.

Edit: Addtitional info - The default configs are only used for deploying apps. Configs in etc/system/local will overwride the standard/default settings.
