Use the Deployment Manager to change Splunk Forwarding agent passwords?


Currently, all agents installed on hosts default to 'changeme' and this credential is still used when the forwarder is in Lightweight mode. I am looking for a way to automate the update of this password using the Deployment Manager for Linux, Solaris and Windows agents.
