back up all splunk files and indexes

Communicator

hi! good morning everyone, I necessarily have to reset my laptop for some reason and I will reinstall splunk again after doing the reset. how can I back up all the files and indexes so that once I install splunk again, I will be able to access the indexed files, the installed app and add-ons and also my customized dashboard?

Thank you so much!

Hi @mdmaala ,
You can take backup of all the configuration files which are in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/ directory.

Below are the documents about backup:
Indexed data (buckets) - http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.5.0/Indexer/Backupindexeddata
- https://www.splunk.com/blog/2011/12/20/index-backup-strategy.html
Configuration (etc) - http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.5.0/Admin/Backupconfigurations

Hope it helps!
Thanks
