While I am not new to the user side, I have been asked to jump into the deep end with the goal of deploying Splunk forwarder to Windows and Linux clients. To this I will admit to being a noob.
I was provided a BES file from an old installation that no longer appears on the server, and modified it with the current server name and MSI details. I think it looks right, but first tings first.
I ran the deployment wizard, but to my surprise it never asked for the BES file. I figured out how to add the deployment server to the end of the MSI in the action.
The problem I am having is when I try to run it, it hangs and then gives me an error 28 “Time out” before anything even happens.
Here are my questions:
-How do I get this to work without hanging and timing out?
-Because I will have to figure out Linux if I go with the first option, how do I create a fixlet using the BES file which should handle both Windows & Linux? I could find nothing useful on the web or YouTube.
Thank you in advance.
