We are planning a deployment using a Splunk Deployment Server, for 80+ UF. We are hoping to push inputs.conf, outputs.conf, and server.conf to these serves. However, outputs.conf and server.conf have references that are unique to that UF's servername. For instance one forwarder may have a servername of server1, and the next be server2, and so on until server80.
The simplest example would then be the host set in the server.conf file: Could this be equal to 'server1' or 'server2' or 'server80' based on which server it is on? My thought was when we first setup the deploymentclient.conf file for each forwarder we would set the clientName to it's server name - however I don't know if there is a way to reference to this clientName for another .conf file.
Any other suggestions to achieve what we are looking for would be very welcome!
