enable deployment monitor in search head or indexer

Builder

I am planning to created deployment enviorment in splunk. And will use these phases in time

1) one search head and one indexer in deployment enviorment
2) one serach heads and two indexers in deployment enviorment
3) two search heads(with pooling) and two or three indexers in deployment enviorment

I have to install deployment monitor in all 3 diffrent phases but where I should install it in serach head or indexers also please explain me the reason.

The short answer is that you should enable it on the search heads in 1) and 2), for 3) you should enable it on one of the search heads, since pooling will make it available to the other search head.

UPDATE:

Not sure what you mean by 'phase', but there is a difference between Deployment Monitor and Deployment Server.

Deployment Server will listen to incoming requests from Deployment Clients and serve them with configurations.

Deployment Monitor will look at _internal index(es) on the Indexers it's connected to in order to determine the overall health of the environment.

Hope this helps,

Kristian

Is the deployment server a dedicated deployment server or running on the search head? If so have you enabled forwarding to your indexers so that they receive the information?
