Getting Data In

Is there a 6.2.x or later version of the universal forwarder supported for Windows server 2003?

I have Splunk 6.2.
I need to know if there is an universal forwarder for Windows server 2003 in 6.2 or later.

Thank you

Per the documentation the 6.2.x universal forwarder is supported on Windows 2003:

This support was removed with Splunk 6.3:

But don't let that keep you from updating your Splunk servers if need be, as the latest Splunk indexers can receive data from Universal Forwarders 4.3 or higher:


you can find the Splunk Universal Forwarder here -

from a previous post on this same topic -
I would suggest that they install the latest release version of the UF 32 bit 6.1.4.
“This version of Splunk is supported but is not recommended on this platform” - is only applicable to 32bit installs on 64 bit machines I believe; so not relevant in this case.
Please note that you only have about 9 months of support left on those. On July 15th, 2015 support ends on Windows Server 2003
