Server.conf serverName variables

Communicator

I am trying to develop a standardized version of server.conf to deploy to all my forwarders.

In a Windows environment I am using the following:

serverName = $HOSTNAME

I tried using %COMPUTERNAME% but Splunk displayed an error when using %s. Fortunatly there was no errors when using a *nix variable. Where can I verify that the value for serverName is being interpreted correctly?

You are on the right track with $, just use $ with the Windows environment variable.

 [general]
 serverName=$COMPUTERNAME
