I've a situation where I need to install two Splunk Universal Forwarders over a server.(Not possible to reuse existing UF since it is owned by our vendor, where cannot have control over it using their deployment server)
With Linux I'm following below activities for 2nd UF:
1. Unzip tar package over at different location.
2. Change management ports using web.conf
3. Change server name in splunk-launch.conf
Am I missing any other steps?
Do I need to perform third step??To change service name or no need of it??
If I'm installing two UFs over a windows, would I need to perform this third step their as well??
Is installing two splunk universal forwarders on Linux host officially supported by Splunk, if yes then any reference??
I know it doesn't support for Windows.
If I use any alternatives to UF (Ex: Rsyslog & WMI), I loose the reliability, so having above approach.
