I ran into a problem while putting together an Ansible playbook for deploying forwarder config. The initial deployment works just fine but if I try and update the forwarders with the new outputs.conf it's as if the new configuration doesn't get picked up. I've restarted the service.
In order to have better control over splunk service restarts, I am not using splunk install app to install the forwarder. I'm placing splunkclouduf configuration files into the apps directory and restarting splunk service only if there are configuration changes.
Is there a location where splunk caches forwarder settings?
