You can install the universal forwarder on a machine which already has an instance of full Splunk. However, it will not install over the full Splunk instance. Instead, they will exist side-by-side.

Thanks, the universal forwarder is working properly on a machine which already has an instance of full Splunk

The Universal Forwarder is actually a separate binary with a separate installer. I have not done it personally, but I do not see a reason why installing both of these would not be possible.

Another method would be to set up the current full splunk instance to forward to your other instance.
