Configure SYSLog on a Windows Server



my question might be dumb but it is worth to ask,
On a Windows Servers, how do i configure to send the authentication.log to a Splunk heavy forwarder?
is this the same to say "I need to configure the syslog to be sent to the heavy forwarder?"

Thank you!

  1. Install a universal forwarder on your windows server
  2. During the installation, put Heavy Forwarder's IP in the Receiving Indexer field (and deployment server IP if you have one)
  3. Configure monitor input stanza in inputs.conf to point to the authentication.log
  4. restart the universal forwarder.
