vandelin586/splunk ensures that splunk (windows) is installed the services are running and connected to the splunk admin server. The splunk admin server details are within our global.yaml hiera file.
This has been tested on Windows 2012
This module uses 'puppet-archive', '1.3.0' to obtain the software from my artifactory server.
vandelin586/splunk uses the following hiera data to allow the module to function -Artifactory_host - Contains URL to artifactory holding the splunk MSI file -splunkadmsrv - Contains the Splunk admin server the clients connect to -splunkdir - Is a hiera value where to locate the package on remote client -winsplunkport - The port the Splunk client uses to communicate with Splunk admin server
Puppet Server v2016.4.2 Tested on Windows Server 2012 Splunk version splunkforwarder-6.5.2-67571
I know there is a Splunk module out there and perhaps I will use this module as the customer now wants this supported on Linux and Windows systems. This module with the correct hiera input will install on Windows 2012
