After installing the universal forwarder on the forwarding host using windows, the splunk enterprise has been able to detect it but it is not sending any logs. Has 0 deployed apps. Please I need help on how to get it to start forwarding logs. Thanks.
Does the forwarder have inputs defined and enabled? Has the forwarder written any error messages into its splunkd.log file?
Please I'm not too sure what you are asking, I installed the forwarder the normal way via windows, put in the splunk id and PW, put in a deployment server IP with the normal port 8089, the indexer @ 9997 and finished the installation. Not sure what I did wrong. Please help I'm a novice.
