Hi All,

We dont have splunk enterprise installed on windows 2008 R2 server. We have installed the Splunk Universal forwarder(6.2.3 version) on windows 2008 R2 server(64-bit). After installing, we configured input.config file and output.config file as,
input.config:

[default]
host = WIN-NR8HN3JRK2V

[script://$SPLUNK_HOME\bin\scripts\splunk-wmi.path]
[splunktcp://8000]
disabled = 0

output.config file:

[tcpout]
defaultGroup = default-autolb-group

[tcpout:default-autolb-group]
server = 192.168.0.175:8000

[tcpout-server://192.168.0.175:8000]

Now, how can I get the log data from windows 2008 R2 server to my splunk server(192.168.0.175:8000) ? where it will be stored in my server?
Can anyone help me to get out of this?

Thanks in advance,
Mahesh P.

First of all, it must be inputs.conf and outputs.conf, not input.config and output.config (notice the s character, in particular, as well as the suffix). Secondly, have you considered this?
