What's new

Here's what's new in the latest version of the Splunk App for Windows Infrastructure:

  • Many bug fixes.
  • A new server role winfra-admin has been added that makes it easier to grant permissions to Splunk users to search the Splunk App for Windows Infrastructure indexes. (MSAPP-2698)

Current known issues

The Splunk App for Windows Infrastructure has the following known issues:

  • The dashboard builder does not work properly with Internet Explorer version 8 or earlier. To work around the problem, use another Splunk Enterprise-supported browser. (MSAPP-2259, MSAPP-2277)
  • Searches in the Host Performance page can be slow. (MSAPP-2276)
  • If you click the Back button on your browser when you are in the Setup page for the app, the app incorrectly reloads the Setup page instead of returning you to the page you were on before you loaded the Setup page. This problem appears to only happen with Internet Explorer 11. (MSAPP-2245)
  • If you upgrade Splunk after installing the Splunk App for Microsoft Exchange, you might experience spurious JavaScript errors when you next load the app. To fix the problem, perform a hard refresh of the page (usually by clicking your web browser's 'Reload' icon while holding down the Shift key. (MSAPP-2162)
  • Some minor artifacts occur when you collapse the "Add Panels" sidebar on the Dashboard Builder page. (MSAPP-2109)
  • Some minor artifacts occur when navigating through the app menus. (MSAPP-2061)

Change log (what's been fixed)

  • Column sorting now works properly on the Network Monitor browser page as a result of a fix to Splunk Enterprise. (MSAPP-1815, SPL-80746)
  • The default time range for the Administrator Audit page has been increased from 15 minutes to 1 hour. (MSAPP-2902)
  • The Health Issues page now reports the correct duration for outages. (MSAPP-2873)
  • The TA-DomainController-2012R2 add-on now properly gathers Active Directory health information on a Windows Server 2012 R2 domain controller that does not hold the DNS Server role. (MSAPP-2750)
  • The TA-DomainController-2012R2 add-on now properly returns Active Directory forest and schema information on child domains on Windows Server 2012 R2. (MSAPP-2627, MSAPP-2756)
  • The "Account Domain" drop down, available on several Active Directory pages, now only shows fully-qualified domain names (FQDNs) for domains instead of both FQDNs and NetBIOS names. (MSAPP-2658)
  • The add-on now also accounts for NT LAN Manager (NTLM) failures (Event code 4776) for failed logins. (MSAPP-2632)
  • The Active Directory Overview page no longer accounts for case sensitivity when it displays domain or forest information. (MSAPP-2631)
