Enable Node Manager on Search Head


Hi All,

Kindly need your advise, I need to setup indexer cluster on my customer env, but unfortunately they don't have any other server to act as manager node server,  my question is, can I enable manager node role on search head server?

is there any impact to search head function?

Hi @ricky_riswanto,

sorry but you cannot!

as you can read at, it's written in Splunk documentation: "Each cluster node (manager, peer, or search head) must reside on a separate Splunk Enterprise instance."

You have to find another server.
