Hello,

i have a windows machine(Windows Version 10) which is configured to send data to a indexer. but data is not sent to indexer. while checking splunkd log, i see a warning 

WARN IniFile - C:\Program Files\SplunkUniversalForwarder\etc\apps\<app_name>\local\inputs.conf, line 1: Cannot parse into key-value pair: ?####################################

there is this as issue in inputs conf which is corrected now. but could it be the issue which blocks the UF to send data to indexer?

If Splunk cannot parse its configuration file then, yes, it could prevent it from ingesting data.  In this case, an error in inputs.conf  may prevent the UF from reading one or more inputs, but would not block the UF from sending other data to the indexer.

Okay. Thanks for your response.

I have multiple monitor stanzas in my inputs conf file..So you are saying this mistake i made in one stanza will not affect other stanzas..data will still sent to indexer?
