Deployment Architecture

deploy new deploymentclinet.conf

Path Finder

I have a set of Windows servers that are calling home to an indexer. We now have a dedicated deployment server. How can I deploy a new deploymentclient.conf to this set of servers to have them start calling home to the new deployment server? I can send new inputs.conf, etc., but I haven't found in the documentation how to get a new deploymentserver.conf file to a server.

I do this via the command line:

splunk set deploy-poll <IP_address/hostname>:<management_port>
splunk restart

This call gets made by our config management, when we need to make a change. For a new install this cmd is part of the install script.
