How to repack the installation package MSI for Splunk universal forwarder?

New Member

Hey guys

Is it possible to rebuild msi installation package for Splunk Forwarder?
I want to assemble my installation package (msi) with pre-installed data, such as IP servers, the selected log, the account with which UF will be started, and possibly other parameters.

Unpacking and packing are very simple but in which file has stored the parameters that can be set initially, I can not find.
Where is this file and what is it called?

You probably need to use some packaging method to capture all the changes you want to do. (snapshot of clean system-> install UF-> Configure UF per your need-> second snapshot). Another option would to be have a custom issuance/script which does UF installation and configurations per your need.

I think you are going into unsupported direction - I wouldn't do it...
