Getting errors when Splunk add-on for Tomcat is installed on Splunk Universal Forwarder

While installing Splunk add-on for Tomcat on Universal forwarder, if you get the below error:

08-15-2021 10:41:53.124 +0900 ERROR ModularInputs - Introspecting scheme=tomcat: Unable to run "/opt/splunkforwarder/bin/python3.7 /opt/splunkforwarder/etc/apps/Splunk_TA_tomcat/bin/tomcat.py --scheme": child failed to start: No such file or directory
08-15-2021 10:41:53.124 +0900 ERROR ModularInputs - Unable to initialize modular input "tomcat" defined in the app "Splunk_TA_tomcat": Introspecting scheme=tomcat: Unable to run "/opt/splunkforwarder/bin/python3.7 /opt/splunkforwarder/etc/apps/Splunk_TA_tomcat/bin/tomcat.py --scheme": child failed to start: No such file or directory.

You can ignore this error as the Splunk add-on for Tomcat's modular input requires a heavy forwarder which ships Python in it. As Python isn't provided with Splunk Universal Forwarder, you would get this error if a Python executable is not found on your Splunk universal forwarder machine.
