What are the implications of running the splunk forwarder on a non-standard port? Do I have to change anything in the deployment server to look for deployment clients on a different port? Or am I going to see normal behavior without any other changes whatsoever?
Agree with jbsplunk. the forwarder can run on a port other than 8089. However, it should be able to connect to deployment server on the mgmt port and for making things simpler, the mgmt of deployment server should be same as that of the other splunk nodes (search heads and indexers)
