I am facing problems while editing and re-enforcing the indexes.conf from master. I edited the indexes.conf in Splunk\etc\master-apps\local and applied it to the peers by using the cluster-bundle command. However, on doing so the default and local folders under slave-apps on peers got deleted. I want to know the correct way of doing this, as in how and in which sequence to stop the master, peers, search head, in order to apply the edited indexes.conf successfully.
I am using all Splunk instances of v5.0.5
