Hi,

For testing purpose. I am install Splunk Enterprise and also install Splunk Universal forwarder in same machine (windows 64bit). I am also configured, the Splunk Enterprise receive port is 9997. Configuring the  Universal forwarder using the local IP.

In Splunk Enterprise it does not shows my machine logs or source.

In my Universal Forwarder > etc > system > local > ( "inputs.conf" file does not shows).

I also checked the ports (9997 port is open in my machine).

Please help me to solve the issue.

Hi @Ramax,

you can install and run Splunk Enterprise and Universal Forwarder, but you cannot address the log of UF to SE on the same machine!

In addition it hasn't any sense because you can take local logs using SE.

If you want to performa a test, you could run a Virtual Machine on the same server in which run UF, but using a different IP address.

Ciao.
