Splunk agent rollout to Windows servers

Our client approached us with the issue of non-compliant agents who were causing issues with reporting accuracy. This impacted business compliance targets and presented potential security threats.

The challenge we faced was to bulk upgrade multiple client machines with zero downtime, while at the same time improving cyber security by upgrading the client to a higher supported version.

  • We implemented custom error checking to verify the number of clients affected for rollout and precise fix.
  • We configured custom script to confirm the Splunk version was currently installed across multiple domains.
  • We deployed rollout to over 250 servers in staged fashion, targeting non-production in the first instance.
  • A verification script was deployed to establish the upgrade was successful and reporting issues were resolved.
  • The impact resulted in a significant saving of over 500 hours in the troubleshooting and upgrading of individual servers.
