Can UF be installed in E drive and monitor logs present in different drive(Network drive)



I have installed Splunk UF in E drive on windows server and able to monitor all the logs present in E drive.

I have request to monitor Network drive logs present on the same windows server and the user has full access to network drive.

I have placed monitoring stanza under splunk_home/etc/system/local/inputs.conf( E drive) mentioning the path of the logs present in network drive . But i do not see any logs related to Network drive in Splunk.

Is there way to monitor network drive logs when UF is present in E drive on windows server?

Did you restart the UF after editing inputs.conf (it's required)?

Check splunkd.log to see if the UF reports any problems reading E:.
