I have customers running Splunk on Windows on Nutanix. I'd like to take advantage of Smart Store, which requires a Linux indexer. Can I add a Linux indexer as a search peer to a Windows search head? Is this a supported configuration?
This would probably be a short term solution while the environment is migrated from Windows to Linux over several months. The Windows indexer would be kept online until the old data aged out, rather than doing a data migration.
