Splunk does not publicize future release plans like that. Typically, EOL plans are communicated months in advance, with customer outreach, so it will not come as a surprise and you will have time to plan for it.

What will happen to our Windows 2003 server splunkforwarders version 6.2.3 & 6.5.2?

You need to upgrade them to 7.0 and then 8.0. See Upgrade paths to 8.0 in the Installation Manual. Windows 2003 is no longer a supported operating system, even for forwarders. See the System requirements.

Nothing will happen to them. They will continue to function, but are not supported by Splunk.

My bet is at Splunk .conf 2019 during the keynote speech sometime between 9AM-10AM PDT Tue 10/22/2019 🙂
