Hi,
Wanted to know if there is a length limit to the clientName property that is set in the deploymentclient.conf?

No, I do not think so.
According to docs, Client names should be unique.
http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.0.2/Updating/Configuredeploymentclients#Set_a_client_n...

clientName = deploymentClient
* Defaults to deploymentClient.
* A name that the deployment server can filter on.
* Takes precedence over DNS names.

https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.0.2/Admin/Deploymentclientconf

let me know if this helps!

HI @mayurr98
Yep,I saw the official docs however didn't see whether there are any length restriction, wanted to hear from community experience whether anyone faced any issues with long names (60+ chars) before I decide on the standard naming convention for my environment
