hi splunkers,

I am installing splunk for Windows app in my windows environment. My server is 2012 R2. I followed the instructions in the docs.splunk.com, but I can't see my active directory data. The primary problem is when i click start in dialog box to detection type of data, my data active directory were not found.

For example:
...
Active Directory: Domains not found.
Detecting Domain Controllers
Active Directory: Domain Controllers not found.
Detecting DNS
Active Directory: DNS not found.
Detecting Users
Active Directory: Users found.
...

I checked addons in my server but I don't found my problem.

Any idea ?

Hi everyone,

The splunk's eventtype was not configured with "index=msad" in the windows application, when I configured index=msad , I could see my health data in application.

Thank you for attention.

Cheers.

Hi,

The Windows Infrastructure first-time-run page detects on event types. Even if the data is present, the detection will fail if the event types are not present.

Can you perform the following search and see what data comes back?

eventtype=msad-dc-health

When I ran a searh:
index=* source=Powershell sourcetype="MSAD:NT6:Health", I saw 6,220 events.

Any idea?

Do you have SA-ldapsearch on your search heads, and the msad, winevents, and perfmon indexes on your indexers?
