Are you running more than one forwarder on a machine so that the same hostnames show up as duplicate deployment clients?
If this is the case, you can set different servername and default-hostnames for your forwarders on the same machine to differentiate your forwarder clients.
splunk set servername <new_servername> splunk set default-hostname <new_hostname>
For example, if you have two universal forwarders sending data from the same host named myhost, you can set both the servername and default hostname of the first forwarder to myhostuf01, and those of the second forwarder to myhost_02.
Hope this helps. Thanks!
Nope. I only have one UF for each client. Originally, I had installed it a few times before during testing. It seems like it's treating each install unique (based on its GUID).
I think it is because the multiple installs were not completely uninstalled according to https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Forwarder/7.0.2/Forwarder/Uninstalltheuniversalforwarder
Following the doc above and rebooting the machine should do the trick.
