I am new to splunk,
I need to collect Remote event Log on my Windows splunk server.
So Under my splunk GUI
Manager » Data inputs » Event log collections » My_server_logs
It Gives Me error :
Failed to fetch data: In handler 'win-wmi-enum-eventlogs': Unable to get wmi classes from host '10.151.57.199'. This host may not be reachable or WMI may be misconfigured.
Now the log i am fetching is a Unix Machine so do i need to configure the win-wmi on unix or there is any other tool i need to configure for this.
please share the sequence of steps to configure this.
Oh so you mean the other way around? You're running Splunk on Windows but have remote logs on a Unix box? In that case you can't use WMI at all, it's Windows only. For getting events from your remote Unix box, you should install a Universal Forwarder on it and have it send the events back to your indexer. Or configure it to send syslog.
