Deployment Server/Client Not Working

Path Finder

I am working in a development environment.
One indexer/search head (DeploymentServer)
One forwarder (DeploymentClient)
I am trying to get my forwarder to install the *nix app and update it's inputs.conf.

On DeploymentServer

/opt/splunk/etc/system/local/serverclass.conf

[global]
whitelist.0=*
restartSplunkd=True
stateOnClient=enabled

[serverClass:lcfapp-d:app:unix]
machineTypes=linux-x86_64
stateOnClient=enabled
restartSplunkd=True

[serverClass:lcfapp-d:app:lcfapp-d]
stateOnClient=enabled

On DeploymentServer
/opt/splunk/etc/deployment-apps/unix
/opt/splunk/etc/deployment-apps/lcfapp-d/local/inputs.conf
/opt/splunk/etc/deployment-apps/lcfapp-d/local/app.conf

On DeploymentClient

/opt/splunkfowarder/etc/system/local/deploymentclient.conf

[lcfapp-d]
[target-broker:deploymentServer]
targetUri= 192.168.XXX.XXX:8089 (the X's are numbers)

I have restarted splunk on both machines several times.
Am I missing something?

Try this:

[global]
whitelist.0 = *

[serverClass:lcfapp-d:app:unix]
stateOnClient=enabled
restartSplunkd=True


[serverClass:lcfapp-d:app:lcfapp-d]
stateOnClient=enabled
restartSplunkd=true

[serverClass:lcfapp-d]
machineTypes=linux-x86_64

And just to clarify, the main issue here is that you hadn't defined the "lcfapp-d" serverclass. The stanzas containing the ":app:" parts are explicitly for defining which apps should go to which serverclasses, so those serverclasses need to be defined on their own for that to work.

I am half way there. The unix app was installed.
The /opt/splunkforwarder/etc/system/local/inputs.conf was not updated.
It did create a /opt/splunkforwarder/etc/apps/lcfapp-d/local/inputs.conf file.

etc/system is not under the deployment server's control. The only thing the deployment server does is it pushes apps from its deployment-apps directory to deployment clients' apps directory (according to the rules set in serverclass.conf), so no other directories will have their contents modified.
