Hi 

I want to deploy a new configuration in inputs.conf file for a specific server from the deployment server.

 

Can anyone suggest some detailed steps?

 

Thanks in advance

Hi @jackin,

please see at https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/9.0.0/Updating/Aboutdeploymentserver

You can find all the informations you need.

In few words you have to:

  • configure your client as client of the Deployment Server,
  • on DS, by CLI create an App to deploy containing your inputs.conf,
  • on DS by UI create a serverclass containing the server to manage and the app to deploy,
  • remember to flag the option restart Forwarder on the App otherwise your upgrade doesn't run!
  • wait for the next upgrade or force it by CLI.

In the above documentation the process is very well described.

In addition on the Splunk Channel on YouTube you can find many interesting video.

To close I hint to follow the Admin training.

Ciao.

Giuseppe
