Set up a data collection node
The Splunk App for VMWare uses the Splunk OVA for VMware for data collection node installation and configuration. It is available at Splunkbase.
See the Install the Splunk OVA for VMware section of the Splunk OVA for VMWare and NetApp documentation for information on creating and deploying the Splunk OVA for VMWare and NetApp.
- Set up forwarding to the port on which the Splunk indexer(s) is configured to receive data. See Enable forwarding on a Splunk Enterprise instance in the Forwarding Data manual.
Note: If the Splunk App for NetApp Data ONTAP version 2.0.1 or above is installed in your environment, get the latest
SA-Utils version from the Splunk Add-on for VMWare package, and overwrite the existing versions of
SA-Utils on the NetApp ONTAP data collection node. The data collection node is not automatically updated when you install the latest version of the Splunk App for VMware.
