Install the Splunk Add-on for EMC VNX

In a distributed deployment, install the Splunk Add-on for EMC VNX to your search heads and heavy forwarders.
This add-on does not support universal forwarders because the add-on requires Python.
The add-on does not need to be installed on indexers because it does not support universal forwarders or light forwarders, thus parsing occurs on the heavy forwarder rather than on indexers.
Note: You cannot use a deployment server to deploy the configured add-on to forwarders because the add-on uses modular inputs to collect data remotely. Using a deployment server to deploy configured add-ons to multiple forwarders results in duplicate data collection.
