How to install Heavy Forwarder image via hyperV

New Member

Hi Splunk Support,

Good day!

We need to install a Heavy forwarder to test out splunk. We need some guidance since this is the first time I am going to do this.

Our infra got two physical hyperV (hyperV1 and hyperV2) our client gave me a 300GB hyperV VM disk/virtual machine file. They say this is the splunk HF and need to be exported to our current HyperV  infa.

This is the screenshot of the folder of what they gave me.



I would like to know how in the world can I export the 300GB HF image to our current HyperV setup?

I would like to seek your expertise and assistance on this and would appreciate to have a step by step guide on how to do this.

Best Regards,
