We just upgraded our HWF to version 8.2.5 and now when we start splunk we get this this message:
"ERROR: Detected httpout stanza in outputs.conf , forwarding data over HTTP is only supported on Universal Forwarders. For more information, see "
This HWF is outputting all data to the HEC on another splunk instance and is working fine.
What is the meaning of the message? Is this function going to be deprecated?
Note the page it refers to says things like "Supported on Splunk universal forwarders only."
It would be a real concern if this is to be deprecated - does anyone have any idea?
the page that teh "see" above referred to was: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Forwarder/latest/Forwarder/Configureforwardingwithoutputs.conf
