Is it possible to install Splunk Security Enterprise 6.4.0 on Windows?

Hello everyone. 

Currently I have a cluster architecture of Splunk Enterprise 8.0.7. 

  • SH cluster + Indexer Cluster + Master Node + Deployer, all of them in Windows.

Now I have to deploy Splunk Security over that architecture.

Is that possible?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your answer @richgalloway 

So, Can I have a SH as a standalone and install in that search head the App, and connect the SH standalone with the indexer cluster?

Thanks in advance

Yes, you can run ES on a standalone Windows SH connected to an indexer cluster, although I think you'll be happier running ES on Linux.

Thanks again.

Windows SHCs are not supported.  See https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/ES/6.4.0/Install/InstallEnterpriseSecuritySHC#Prerequisites_fo...
