To install a universal forwarder onto each Windows server, follow the steps located in one of these topics in the core Splunk Enterprise documentation:

Once you've installed the universal forwarders, you can proceed to deploying the relevant Splunk App for Windows Infrastructure add-ons to each one, depending on what the server does.
