Hello. Please see the screenshot on this post, its from the Splunk Universal Forwarder (UF) installer steps. Are we supposed to check the box for “Add user as local administrator” when installing a UF on a Domain Controller or leave it unchecked?

Hello Adonio. I already know what the windows user should be, I just am not sure if this user needs to actually be granted local admin rights on my Domain Controller (since I am installing UFs on my DCs).
