Hi,

I created 2 indexers connected to masternode on a AWS ec2 instance.

Initially when setting up the configuration i was able to login to my peers GUI,but once i stop and start my instance on which peers are running.Im no longer able to access the peers GUI via 8000(which is open to all).

I checked my web.conf it is set to 1.
Splunk service is running.
Splunk Web is also running.

Im able to login to my master node but not my peers..

I dont know what to do now,kindly help me in logging to the GUI.

The OS of instance(Peer) is RH Linux 7

In AWS, at least in the free/cheap tier, whenever you stop/restart a server, it is assigned a different DNS name. So the splunk config files should use the internal 10.* IP addresses, which DO NOT change, but the public DNS names that allow you to connect from the outside change every time you restart any server.

If you reboot the box (at least in the free tier), it will be assigned a different DNS name.
