we have two Deployment Servers, one has apps for all of our servers the other has apps for all of our workstations
by mistake we rolled out some Universal Forwarders to the servers and pointed them at the wrong Deployment Server, so I went through all of them and pointed them at the correct Deployment Server by editing their C:\Program Files\SplunkUniversalForwarder\etc\system\local\deploymentclient.conf and restarting Splunk
now some of those servers moved to the correct Deployment Server and are listed on it's Forwarder Management page while others still remain on the wrong Deployment Server, (it has been over a week) this makes no sense to me, what could I be missing, what did I do wrong?
I am new to Splunk < 2 years experience
Can run following command from splunk bin directory via CMD
cd C:\Program Files\SplunkUniversalForwarder\bin
splunk btool deploymentclient list
verify targetUri = ahs correct deployment server ip configured , if yes you might need to restart the UF to take the effect.
if UF is still pointing to incorrect deployment server, please run fowlloing command to update correct deployment server IP
splunk set deploy-poll <deploymentserverip>:8089
