Ayn Thanks for the link, I have read it but am not able to know where to start, could you please guide me. I can be reachable at
No. I really think the docs do a very good job of explaining the step-by-step process very clearly. If you have problems grasping the concepts, I suggest you take some Splunk training (see http://www.splunk.com/view/education/SP-CAAAAH9 ).
Can you please give me the url to download the software for deployment server and configuration steps.
we have dedicated server for splunk deployment.
The only thing that makes a DS a DS is the presence of a
serverclass.conf file under
$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/. I like to manually edit it and place it in
$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local. Then just add to it manually from the CLI or from
Forwarder management. Also, configure other servers to point to it using a
deploymentclient.conf file. This is a client-pull architecture, meaning that nothing is "pushed out", the clients "pull in" apps and changes to apps.
