I would like to distribute and make changes to the inputs.conf files of the universal forwarders using deployment server.
So far I have created a new directory in the /etc/deployment-apps:
and created an inputs.conf in the default sub-folder of it. After configuring things in the Settings -> forwarder Management my "App" and the corresponding inputs.conf has been distributed, all fine.
But now I want to make changes to this inputs.conf, hoping it will also reach the forwarder, this is however not the case. The connection between forwarder and the deployment server is fine.
Do I miss-understand the concept of the pushing changes? Should that not be automatic?
This is what I am doing, the path is:
so, the MLBSO_HANA_inputs is under .../deployment-apps/. As mentioned, the first initial time it works, but then if I make the change to the inputs.conf inside the default directory, then it is not reflected on the forwarders.
Or do you mean that the inputs.conf should be placed really directly in the .../deployment-apps/ directory itself? But then where would it land on the forwarder? And most important, how would I distinguish between different inputs.conf files that I have to distribute to different forwarders? Now I have it under separate "apps" sub-folders of the ../deployment-apps/ folder.
