Why I am receiving this message "There are currently no forwarders configured as deployment clients to this instance'' and how to resolve it?

New Member

We have the application running in remote servers using weblogic.
We use the log 4j configuration.
Have installed Splunk in my system and universal forwarder as well in my local system.
But why do I get the below message?

There are currently no forwarders configured as deployment clients to this instance

Please help me in resolving it.

Hi there Ramu,

Please, run this command on your forwarders to see if they were configured properly first.

splunk show deploy-poll

Can you share a deploymentclient.conf file of any forwarder ?

Run this on your forwarder

  1. ./splunk enable deploy-client -auth admin:changeme
  2. ./splunk restart
  3. And check if you are receiving data on your indexer from that forwarder.

Let me know how it goes.
