I'm trying to follow the Splunk documentation to set up my Splunk Linux Deployment Server to update configuration files for my Windows servers using the Splunk Forwarder. Specifically, I would like to update the C:\Program Files\SplunkUniversalForwarder\etc\system\local\inputs.conf and outputs.conf files automatically when needed from the Linux deployment server. Looking at the documentation example, it appears that they are asking to create the following directory on the deployment server to accomplish this; $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/deployment-apps/<deployment app name>/default/inputs.conf.

This question is no longer valid. It was superseded by "Splunk Linux Deployment Server and the Windows Universal Forwarder Configuration Question". Sorry for the confusion. I can't figure out how to delete it.
