List Of Applications Installed On A Host Server
Today we will discuss how we can get all the applications’ names with all additional information regarding those applications, which are installed in the host server or client’s machine. This can be a very sensitive issue sometimes if you want to control what applications the client can install in their servers.
NOTE: We will demonstrate this on a Windows machine.
First of all, put this “win_installed_apps.bat” script in the following path:
If you want to download the win_installed_apps.bat script, please click here.
Now go to the $SPLUNK_HOME\etc\system\local
And edit inputs.conf, add below stanza.
[script://$SPLUNK_HOME\bin\scripts\win_installed_apps.bat] interval = 300 index = windowslog disabled = false
NOTE: create “windowslog” index before configuring the inputs.conf.
Now restart the Splunk server by going $SPLUNK_HOME/bin
Now go to the search head and log in with your credentials.
Now go to the “Search and Reporting” app and search
index="windowslog" | table DisplayName DisplayVersion Publisher | where isnotnull(Publisher)
In case of Linux or Unix server use the following “package.sh” script and paste into $SPLUNK_HOME/bin/scripts/
