Thanks. Please just another quick question. Which section in the ansible scripts will I put 1000 linux servers? Would I put in the scripts IP addresses or how will ansible know which machines to deploy splunk UF to?

Hi @ngwodo,

I'm not an expert of Ansible, but you can see at https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/latest/user_guide/playbooks_intro.html

Ciao.
