Getting Data In

Windows NT to forward logs to Splunk Enterprise, how?

Path Finder

I've been tasked to forward logs from Windows NT to Splunk Enterprise however, there is no Syslog inbuilt for Windows and also no Splunk Universal Forwarder.

Any idea how I should approach to this for corporate use?

I'm sure there is a reason, and that its beyond your control but NT was EOL 13 years ago!
I salute your determination! 🙂

If my comment helps, please give it a thumbs up!

Hi Kitteh,
try using an old verion of Universal Forwarder, e.g. 5.18 and check if you correctly receive logs.

three years ago, I had to install UF on an XP machine and I used version 4.3.7 with a special configuration:

disabled = 1
disabled = 1
disabled = 1

The safer way to proceed is to open a case to Splunk Support

Did you tried to use WMI?
