Taking off a peer which is already down from single site cluster

Builder

Hi,

A peer was down recently because of some server issues and the buckets re balanced among themselves with the other servers.
I want to remove the peer from the indexer cluster as the the host cannot be used anymore.

And, Splunk is not running and cannot be run as one of the drives that hold the hot data got erased. There was no loss in the cluster as we are using the replication and search factors.

Could you please suggest a method or all the steps needed to remove the peer from a cluster safely.

Thanks,
N

hello there,

many answers here in the portal, example:
https://answers.splunk.com/answers/241511/steps-to-remove-a-cluster-member-permanently.html

read here in docs:
http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.0.3/Indexer/Removepeerfrommasterlist
http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.0.3/Indexer/Takeapeeroffline
read all the way through.

if the indexer is already down, run this command:
splunk offline --enforce-counts

hope it helps
