How to troubleshoot forwarder management not showing any clients?

How can I troubleshoot the deployment server or universal or heavy forwarder?

I set up deployment server then in forwarders I run ./splunk set deploy-poll ip:port 

But Forwarder Management clients = 0!

Why? How can I troubleshoot it and solve it?

 

in forwarder:

cat /opt/splunkforwarder/etc/system/local/deploymentclient.conf


[target-broker:deploymentServer]
targetUri = X.X.X.58:8089

 

in deployment-server:

 

/opt/splunk/bin/splunk list deploy-clients


WARNING: Server Certificate Hostname Validation is disabled. Please see server.conf/[sslConfig]/cliVerifyServerName for details.
No deployment clients have contacted this server.

 

Note: the forwarder and deployment server in Google Cloud VMs

Note: I tried it on a local server, and it's running right

 

can anyone help me?

Verify the forwarders are allowed to connect to port 8089 on the DS.

Look in splunkd.log on the forwarders for connection/protocol errors.  They'll probably come from the "DC" component.

Thank you, the problem is solved

sorry for that, but the firewall was denying 8089.
