Where should I configure settings for Splunk DB Connect in a search head clustering environment?

Champion

Hi,

I am testing out SHC, and have a question on how DB Connect works with it. Where should I set the settings - in a conf file on the deployer, or can I do it on one of the cluster members, and it will send out the configs to all the cluster members? Same question for when I add a db connection...

Changes made directly to conf files must be propagated via the deployer.

Runtime changes made on one cluster member, such as changes made via dashboards, get replicated to all other members.

Well, this is a gui settings option that then updates the conf files - how is that handled?

Conf file changes made through the GUI should get replicated automatically. It's only direct editing of conf files that requires the deployer. More details on this can be found in this topic:
