Servername in local\server.conf

Communicator

OK, so now I know how to deploy UF on a Citrix Golden Image:
http://answers.splunk.com/answers/69715/citrix-golden-image
http://answers.splunk.com/answers/86989/multiple-servers-booting-from-master-image

But I'm curious: The 4.3 documentation only says to replace the "GUID" and the "host" attributes:

Edit server.conf in /etc/system/local and remove the guid attribute.
Edit inputs.conf in /etc/system/local and remove any host attribute.

What about the "servername" attribute in local\server.conf?

On the Image, you will probably want to remove that attribute as well. You may be better off running this command ./splunk clone-prep-clear-config on the image. See here for more: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/5.0.5/Deploy/Makeadfpartofasystemimage

Thanks,
I just found it a little strange that if it is important to change, it isn't in the docs. Hope they haven't forgotten it in the "clone-prep"-command 🙂

In any case, we're still using 4.3, so we'll go with the manual option, I guess.

I'd recommend upgrading as soon as possible. Support ends for 4.3 EOM.

Yeah, you know.. time flies when you're having fun.

And people must have an awful lot of fun in enterprise architectures, it seems!

I appreciate the feedback, but unless you can actually confirm, or give a reason for what to do, you haven't really answered anything, have you? 🙂
