Hi,
I cannot add some of the Universal Forwarders to NEW server class. I have a simple one server structure using Splunk 6 with multiple universal forwarders - they are visible in Forwarder Management (uf's call in regularly) I check they connect on 9997 and 8089 - connection established, they all have been deployed at the same time and by the same person(me) but when I try to create new server class some of the UF's don't show in window add with other UF's. Strange thing is that most of my 60 UF's are ok and forwarding data, it's only about 5 not behaving. Please help!

I had this problem too. Check the IP address in the "connection established" on the UF's splunkd.log.
In my case, even though the outputs.conf had Deployment Server's IP, they were still not responding.
Remove the deploymentclient.conf and recreate using CLI. Restart splunk on UF
See if that helps - worked for me.
