Hi, 

 

Can someone help me locate a Universal Forwarder install for Windows server 2003 ? 

 

The oldest on the site at present does not appear to support Windows Server 2003 . 

 

Many thanks 

M

If you don't mind.

Where did you find that? It does not show that when I look at that version and the installation fails for that version on my 2003 server.

Thanks @richgalloway . I am trying to find a version that runs on 2003 , i read that 6.2.8 UF supports 2003 so i was looking for the install files for this version. I understand that this is a old version and would not be supported but i still have a requirement to get logs off the servers regardless.

All supported versions of the UF are at https://www.splunk.com/en_us/download/previous-releases/universalforwarder.html.  If you can find a version that runs on Windows Server 2003 it's likely to be incompatible with the rest of your Splunk infrastructure.

Not even Microsoft supports Windows Server 2003.  I recommend you upgrade that server to a supported OS.
