We are planning upgrade our clustered deployment from 8.0.5 to 8.2.1
In case we plan to migrate the KVStore engine to WiredTiger, do we have to mandatorily go through the v8.1 step as mentioned in https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.2.1/Admin/MigrateKVstore ?
Per my understanding, the steps for this method stands like this
In case we decide not to use WiredTiger for now and complete the upgrade to 8.2.1, can we migrate the KV Store to WiredTiger at a later point of time? To elaborate, will the following work:
We do not use KV Store at all now, apart from whatever internal functions that Splunk Enterprise uses it for (no ITSI or ES as well), but want to plan ahead in case we use it in the future.
Thanks in advance!
