Is there a .conf file in splunk where you can configure splunk to start at boot time?

I don't believe it's a change in a splunk .conf file. When you run the CLI that several people mentioned below, it will make an entry into /etc/init.d I believe. That's where you'd have to check, but you can't roll something out via the deployment server to that location.

You may want to write a script that takes a list of hosts and runs the CLI on each host.

Hello

You can run this command from the splunk/bin folder:

./splunk enable boot-start -user splunk 

Or any other user you want splunk start with

Hello, I know there is a CLI command for it but we forgot to do this on a couple UF and would like to do a mass config change. We are just looking for a particular flag in a .conf file to set and push out.
