Getting Data In

Why are we getting an error routing data from heavy forwarders to indexers after enabling SSL?

Hey Happy New Year Splunkers'

We want to forward data from Universal Forwarder --> Heavy Forwarder --> Indexers --> Search Head using SSL b\w HF and Indexers.
We have enabled SSL and we have an error appear "Most likely cause is the scheme or the port number is wrong".
I am not sure that do I have to put stanza of certificate path and port number in config files. And can some tell me what do I need to show up in UF configs and HF configs.

Here are the inputs and outputs config files from HF.

inputs.conf
[default]
host = xxxx

outputs.conf
[tcpout]
defaultGroup = default-autolb-group

[tcpout-server://xxx.xx.xx.x:9997]

[tcpout-server://xxx.xx.xx.x:9997]

[tcpout:default-autolb-group]
disabled = false
server = xxx.xx.xx.x,.xxx.xx.xx.x

[tcpout-server://xxx.xx.xx.x:9997]

Please suggest me if I need to change anything in these configs.

Your outputs.conf probably needs to look like this instead:

[tcpout]
defaultGroup = default-autolb-group

[tcpout:default-autolb-group]
disabled = false
server = xxx.xx.xx.x:9997,.xxx.xx.xx.x:9997

From the docs, [tcpout-server:] is for single server configuration, not for multiple like you're trying. And the server configuration in your [tcpout:<group>] needs to have :<port>, as I included in my example.
