How can I control the client's "Host Name" that appears in Forwarder Management?
Splunk Server on EC2
Universal Forwarder on another EC2
On the client, I have
host = mongod-eu-20141003
in ./search/local/inputs.conf , and that appears correctly in the Search plugin.
Where do I need to put that "host" declaration for that same value to be used in Forwarder Management? I've tried several locations, including directly in the deploymentclient.conf stanza where I tell it how to find the deployement server, but I always just see the DNS name in the list of available servers in Forwarder Management. So instead of mongod-eu-20141003 it just shows the basic EC2 hostname, i.e. ip-[local-vpc-ip-address] .
