Is it possible in inputs.conf in windows machine to use

I tried using:

host = $COMPUTERNAME worked for me on the Windows Splunk 5.0.4 Universal Forwarder.

Did you miss .conf21 Virtual?

Good news! The event's keynotes and many of its breakout sessions are now available online, and still totally FREE!
