Duplicate index stanza in indexes.conf in a clustered environment

Communicator

Hello Splunkers,

I have an indexes.conf file where i have a duplicate index stanza. If i remove one of them will it impact anything? Below is my duplicate stanza. I will probably remove top one if there's no impact.

[custom]
homePath = volume:hot/custom/db
coldPath = volume:cold/custom/colddb
thawedPath = $SPLUNKHOTDB/custom/thaweddb
maxDataSize = autohighvolume
frozenTimePeriodInSecs=31557600
maxTotalDataSizeMB = 500000
homePath.maxDataSizeMB = 66800
repFactor = auto

[custom]
homePath = volume:hot/custom/db
coldPath = volume:cold/custom/colddb
thawedPath = $SPLUNKHOTDB/custom/thaweddb
maxDataSize = autohighvolume
frozenTimePeriodInSecs=31557600
maxTotalDataSizeMB = 500000
homePath.maxDataSizeMB = 66800
enableTsidxReduction = true
timePeriodInSecBeforeTsidxReduction = 15552000
repFactor = auto

Thanks!

There will be no impact if you remove top stanza as bottom one contains 2 more attributes. Make sure that you are restarting splunk if you changing this on standalone indexer server.
