I have installed a universal forwarder on linux server and I have Splunk light cloud instance. I am able to find the forwarder in forwarder management but not in forwarder monitoring screen. I am also not able to add data from my forwarder to the search screen. Can some provide help with this.

Follow the steps in this section, and you should be successful in seeing your forwarders on both the Forwarder Management screen and Forwarder Monitoring screens. If you have any issues, please post here and we can give you some other tips for success.

My search screen looks like the image attached.
I cannot find the New button or select server class button.

But, my Splunk forwarder management screen has the forwarders.
Can you check and let me know if I am doing any mistake in installation.alt text
