Connect a Search Head running on Splunk 7.1.6 to 2 different clusters running on 7.1.6 & 7.2.1

Explorer

Hi Team,

I have to test the following scenario. Can you help me whether this works:

  • A Test Search Head that has Splunk 7.1.6
  • 2 Clustered Environments one in which all the cluster members are running on Splunk 7.1.6 and one more where all the cluster members are running on 7.2.1 .

Now, whether can I connect my Test Search Head to both clusters and is it possible to fetch the data from both the clusters into Test
Search Head.

Please note of the Cluster Master has 7.1.6 Splunk and one more has 7.2.1.

Appreciate your reply.

regards,
Santosh

HI @santosh_hb ,
This is not supported. The search heads have to be at or above the version of the indexers. Therefore your search head would have to be running version 7.2.1 in your scenario.
