Hi, I am having difficulty setting up a deployment server which serves 2x light fowarders. I beleive I have set up the conf files correctly?
deploymentclients.conf (on the fowarders)
[deployment-client] disabled = false [target-broker:deploymentServer] targetUri = myServerName:8089
serverclass.conf (on the deployment server)
[serverClass:global] whitelist.0=* [serverClass:lightforwarders] whitelist.0=* [serverClass:lightforwarders:app:SplunkLightForwarder] stateOnClient=enabled restartSplunkd=true
Is there anything else I need to do to make the server a deployment server (I couldnt find any directions, so I assumed all I need is the serverclass.conf). The same goes for the deployment clients, are there any settings or commands that need to be run to make them clients?
When I run ./splunk list deployment-clients, it says no clients have contacted the server.
If anyone could write some instructions, that would be much appreciated.
Everytime you modify the serverclass.conf file on your deployment server you need to run the following command for the changes to take effect:
/opt/splunk/bin/splunk reload deploy-server
You can then do
/opt/splunk/bin/splunk list deploy-clients
on the deployment server to see if your light forwarders are reporting in.
Also make sure that your deployment app is in /opt/splunk/etc/deploymentapps.
Hope that helps.
You may also be prompted credentials. You should be able to use the same credentials as that of your indexer GUI login if you have admin privileges.
