I am adding a new search head to the existing search head cluster. I want to add the same users to the new search head, from my LDAP. If I copy the authorize.conf & authorization.conf, will it allow the users to log in? Or should I go through the whole process from scratch?
Is it a good practice to keep these files on the Deployment server, so whenever a new server is added to the cluster, it automatically sends the config files?
If you maintain these files on the Deployer node, how do you update the bind password? Wouldn't that have to be in clear text in the Deployer and a forced restart will hash it on the new search head? Seems very insecure.
