The words "Splunk Enterprise must run on Windows" says to me I have no option other than a Windows install of Splunk Enterprise and therefore my currently built Splunk Enterprise Red Hat server install is not fit for this purpose?
The documentation is good but pulling these simple strings together is not easy. Can anyone point me to a document that will answer these questions please?
Nah - you are fine. Put the appropriate UFs on your Windows devices and have the data sent back to your Red Hat indexer(s). I get why the document looks confusing but haven't had any caffeine yet so can't concisely reword it.
