Total newb here, so please be gentle. So we are on the Windows platform and have Splunk Universal Forwarder 8.0.2 installed on many Windows 10 workstations as well on a bunch of Windows Server 2012 R2 etc. I am aware of the C:\Program Files\SplunkUniversalForwarder\etc\system\local directory construct and how to modify files in here and not in the default location
My question is if in the deploymentclient.conf file all we have is the:
targetUri = OurDeploymentServer:8089
Defined, how are our logs getting to our cluster of Indexers. By the way everything is working fine as I joined this team after they built and configured our Splunk environment already, I am just trying to catch up and was upgrading the UniversalForwarders to the latest version, hence my question of how does the data get to the Indexers when all the Forwarders know about is the Deployment server.
