How to handle Splunk ITSI Warning | Eventtype 'wineventlog-ds' Missing?

Hi,

We have a new implementation of Splunk ITSI, running on Splunk Cloud, in a new search head. Since the day the search head was installed, every search that we run is followed by a warning message related to a missing eventttype.

Warning message is similar to below:
"[idx-1.my-company.splunkcloud.com,idx-2.my-company.splunkcloud.com] Eventtype 'wineventlog-ds' does not exist or is disabled."

Anyone have ever experienced this behavior on Splunk ITSI? Or have any knowledge of which is the source app/add-on that contains this eventtype that is being referenced by ITSI?

Thanks!

The Content Pack for Windows Dashboards and Reports (DA-ITSI-CP-windows dashboards) requires the Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Windows as a prerequisite.

All the mentioned event types are shipped with this add-on. The Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Windows DNS is an older app, now archived but functionality of this add-on has been incorporated in Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Windows.
Therefore, installing the Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Windows on the SH will eliminate the missing event types errors from the environment.

There are pre-req's that are required to have the correct knowledge objects for Windows Infrastructure app. If these are not on the same Search Head as the windows infrastructure app it will give you those errors.
