I created an "app" on my old deployment server in etc/deployment-apps/ called deployserver, and in it, created the local directory, and in that created deploymentclient.conf. Deploymentclient.conf contains
And when I reload my legacy deployment server, the deployserver app is dropped onto the client. I'm manually restarting the splunkforwarder on the client (something's weird w/ my serverclasses.conf), and when the client comes back up, the new deployment server doesn't see it. Only after I run bin/splunk set deploy-poll newdeployserver.domain.com:8089 and restart, the splunkforwarder does start talking to the new deployment server.
Reading about precedence, I see that etc/system/local/ will take precedence over an app config, but I thought the deployment config app was a possibility.
Has anyone done this, created a deployment server app? How'd you get it to work?
Thanks for any help.
