I have application with inputs.conf as
host = $decideOnStartup
In serverclass.conf i have entry like
restartSplunkWeb = 0
restartSplunkd = 1
stateOnClient = enabled
Now when i reload deployment server, I can see my deployment app pushing successfully on boxes. But $decideOnStartup is not working as expected untill i manually restart splunk on the forwarder node.
even though splunkd gets restarted after app gets pushed to forwarder. I have to manually restart splunk on forwarder box again.
Am i missing any configuration?
