Remote UniveralForwarder deployment-client setting

Path Finder


The deployment-client setting is required for the remote Universal Forwarder.

And then I want to restart Universal Forwarder.
I know the ID/PW.
Can I set it up in My Deployment-Server?

Hi @KwonTaeHoon 

For settingup deployment client for UF, for first time setup you need to configure deploymentclient.conf
on UF , Once UF is able to connect to deployment server, then using  app settings you can restart the forwarder, whenever you push apps from  from deployment server 

best way to configure deplotmentclient.conf on UF

create a app ex: deplotmentclient--->local--->deploymentclient.conf

add following contents inside deploymentclient.conf

targetUri= https://deploymentserverip:8089


place deplotmentclient app in UF in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps and  $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/deployment-apps/ on deployment server for future managmenet 

and restart the forwader.

setting to enable the restart of UF


you can refer to https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/9.0.3/Updating/Aboutdeploymentserver for more information on deplotment server and client
