Is there a way to force UF to phone home to DS?


Hi All,

I just want to ask if there's a way to force UF to phone home to DS, we want to initiate a force phone home without editing the phone home interval under the deploymentclient.conf, currently the UF is set to phone home to the DS every 6 hours but we have a requirement that sometimes it is required to force phone home to the DS asap. I've already tried restarting the UF and running ./splunk reload deploy-server on the DS to see if it can trigger the UF to force phone home to the DS but it does not work, is there a way to do this, any suggestion can help.

Thanks and regards,

The only way is to restart Splunk. One of the very first things that every Splunk does is DS phonehome.

No, I don't think there is a way to force any client. How many UFs do you have for such a high interval?
