We have a testing or demo environment configured as distributed search that contains one search head, multiple indexers, and heavy forwarders. The search head has some saved searches and dashboards. I would like to know is there any concern if we enable the Distributed Management Console (distributed mode) in the search head? Even if the search head is just used for testing or demo purposes?
If distributed mode DMC is enabled in production search head (instead of running on separate device), what is the impact in terms of performance and functionality ? Why cannot have it on production search head ?
