My indexer is in EST and my syslog is coming from MST. I want the the indexer to change the logs from MST to EST. I have tried the suggested solution and that didn't solve the problem. Any other suggestions.
The problem is likely that you have overriden the host field and are trying to use your overriden/new host value in your props.conf stanza definition. This will not work. You must either use your original host value or use something else, such as sourcetype or source.
