I have adtlog.evt files I wish to look at from Splunk. How do I do this without using a Windows Splunk server? (I do have universal forwarders on some Windows systems if I need to go that route.) My Splunk server resides on Linux.
Details: I have a Netapp filer with CIFS mounts creating the adtlog.evt files and I want to use Splunk to search them.
I don't think this will be easy. You could try something like evtviewer. Note I am not endorsing this, just suggesting it as a way to read those files. I have no idea how you would get that to export the files into a better format. To be honest, I'm not even sure Windows would have an easy way to do this.
Can you have it pick a different logging format? Does the control station (or whatever Netapp uses to "control" the filer) have a console you can get onto? Can you install software there? Does it have another log folder somewhere?
