Is it possible for a single splunk universal forwarder to be managed by two different deployment servers?

Path Finder

I was wondering if possible for a single splunk universal forwarder to be managed by two different deployment servers? I imagine it may not be advisable, because of potential configuration clashes, but wanted to check to see if anyone knows for certain what Splunk's stance is on this, and whether anyone has tried it.

Thank you!

Hi vanderaj2,
I verified speaking with Splunk Support that it isn't possible!
Bye.

You cannot but you can stack Deployment Servers such that the "master" Deployment Server sends to a "slave" Deployment Server and that slave has his apps directory linked to his deployment-apps directory. I am pretty sure that this is not just "not supported" but "ill advised".
