Getting Data In

After installing a universal forwarder on on Active Directory, how do I configure the account, logs to be collected, and the target indexer?

Hi,

I tried to install the Universal Forwarder on Active Directory, but I did not get a window during installation phase to enter the username and password of the account to install with and which logs should be collected and what is the indexer to send these logs to.

How can I configure that after installation is done and I was not able to make these conf. during installation ?!

I am asking about Universal Forwarder not Splunk itself ?!
