And also not appearing in forwarder management clients section  .

On Linux Universal Forwarder,  config for the deployment  server and Communication also allowed between UF and DS server. However server is not appearing 

Commands : splunk set deploy-poll 10.1.1.30:8086

                         splunk restart

I would check the server name on the UF and search what you find in the Forwarder Management on the deployment server. It sounds like everything is working.

 

Forwarder management > click on your server class > search the server name found on UF

To get it to show in the monitoring console:

Monitoring console > settings > Forwarder Monitoring Setup > Rebuild Forwarder assets.

Hope this helps.

Matt

I would check the splunkd logs on the UF to troubleshoot.

restart the splunk service on the UF and tail the logs.

tail -f /opt/splunkforwarder/var/log/splunk/splunkd.log
