Hi. I'm using a Deployment Server to push configurations to a Splunk Universal Forwarder that is running Windows. For the most part, it is working just fine, thanx. ;-)

phoneHomeIntervalInSecs = 120
And, when I issue the below command on the Deployment Client, it echoes that above setting exactly.
splunk cmd btool deploymentclient list
However, a packet capture shows that the Deployment Client is opening up a TCP connection with the Deployment Server, on the management port, every 60 seconds.

gkanapathy and Lowell,
Sorry for the delay - got tied up in other stuff... But, the good news is...
