I have installed Splunk Enterprise 6.4.1 on a VMware Windows Server 2012 R2 instance. I am able to install the Splunk Universal forwarder specifying the same server as the receiver, but when I attempt to configure the forwarder in Splunk Enterprise, I only receive the option to click on the link to configure the receiver, which I've already done from Splunk Web and from the Universal Forwarder installation.
I'm not using a deployment server and I'm only running one instance. This has been challenging to set up and am very eager to get this running correctly. Thanks!
