Identify Splunk instance role



I need to find a way to identify if a Splunk instance is a an HF/UF/Indexer?Deployer/Deployment Server etc. in an automated way.

Is there a way to find out, by looking at file systems, unique process/s, running commands, attributes passed on when splunk service/s start etc. on the system to identify the role of the server in Splunk?

Thanks in advance!!!

You may get what you're looking for from the /services/server/roles REST endpoint.
