Is it possible to use an indexer's IP address for output on universal forwarder, but display the host name on the indexer?

Hi,

Is there a way to use the IP address of the indexer on the universal forwarder but have the name of the host displayed on the indexer ??

Here is my configuration :

[tcpout]
defaultGroup = indexer-group

[tcpout:indexer-group]
maxQueueSize = auto
server = 172.44.23.114:9997

[tcpout-server://172.44.23.114:9997]

Meaning that on my index it would show "prod-log-server" (the hostname) instead of 172.44.23.114

The indexer address used in outputs.conf is unrelated to any hosts set in inputs.conf (or overridden in transforms.conf... so yes, there is a way - nothing's in your way in fact.
