Getting Data In

How do you ensure a deployment client's .conf files are running with new changes?

Hi,

If I use push an update (.conf files) to deployment clients using my deployment server, how do I ensure those clients are running properly using those new .conf file changes? Do I have to manually rebuild the forwarder asset table? Restart splunkd on those clients? Something else?

If you want to make sure the apps in the client are the same as the ones in the Deployment Server, you can check the serverclass.xml file under /opt/splunk/var/run.

There you'll see the last time the client got a push a what is the hash of the app. If for instance you changed something in an app on the Deployment Server, just run /opt/splunk/bin/splunk reload deploy-server and the hashes of each app are recomputed and the match of client and server hashes per app is done again, pushing it when there is a mismatch.
