Why are the EventType Reference Missing for wineventlog-dns in Splunk App for Windows Infrastructure version 1.4.2 and 1.4.3?

Path Finder

Error Running in Search and Reporting App:

[] Eventtype 'wineventlog-dns' does not exist or is disabled.
[] Eventtype 'wineventlog-dns' does not exist or is disabled.

Extra info: I'm in a distributed Splunk environment. However, I'm not using indexer clustering.

Grepped eventtypes:

[splunk@splunk-dev-1 etc]# vi apps/splunk_app_windows_infrastructure/default/eventtypes.conf 

search = ((eventtype=wineventlog_application OR eventtype=wineventlog_system OR eventtype=wineventlog_security) (Type=Warning OR Type=Error) DNS) OR (*eventtype=wineventlog-dns* (Type=Warning OR Type=Error))

description = This event type identifies key events on a host machine running Windows. \
Key events are defined as most commonly occurring scenarios on a Windows host that \
may require immediate attention or may explain issues seen on a host. hence the \
events collected by this event type include the following: \
1. Windows event log events from the System, Application or Security event log \
that indicate errors. \
2. Windows system event log event with event code 1074 for system reboots. Event codes \
600*s although useful in detecting the reboots of the event log itself are useful, \
they have been known to be noisy in reality and so excluded from this event type. \
3. Windows update event log events with event codes 19, 20 or 21 for installs, \
failures and required reboot scenarios. \
4. Windows update log actions indicating install, failure or install requiring reboots. \
Note: since event types dont support append command, we OR the source types.

Solved the problem:

Install on the universal forwarders for DC's/Print Servers/etc.
Install on UF's, like above, and Indexers, and searchheads.

Nothing from what you posted was legible or comprehensible. This is an utterly useless post to anybody who views it.
