However, the clients don't seem to be updating / replacing their output.conf file. (They're "phoning in", and I re-ran /opt/splunk/bin/splunk reload deploy-server).
Is there a way to tell clients to re-load/refresh their apps?
Add a comment line to the outputs.conf on the deployment server. Something like:
That will be enough to cause an update following a deploy-server reload.
