Hi,

We are unable to start the our one of the indexer in cluster getting the below error. Can we copy the directory "/app/splunk/openssl" from any other indexer in cluster and start? is that fine or we need to follow ant other approach?

Cannot start; missing essential directory: /app/splunk/openssl
        Checking critical directories...Validating databases (splunkd validatedb) failed with code '11'.  If you cannot resolve the issue(s) above after consulting documentation, please file a case online at http://www.splunk.com/page/submit_issue

Hi,

Yes, you can copy it from other Splunk Enterprise Instance but make sure that you copy it from same version of Splunk Enterprise instance.

After copying directory make sure that permissions are also correct.
