Hi ,

Im trying to connect the sh cluster to indexer cluster,Im using Splunk Version 7. All the status are ok.
But everytime i will query a search this error shows up

[idx1] [idx2] [idx3] Failed to create a bundles setup with server name 'GUID'. Using peer's local bundles to execute the search, results might not be correct

in splunkd.log it shows

10-01-2017 22:01:43.115 +0800 WARN ISplunkDispatch - Gave up waiting for the captain to establish a common bundle version across all search peers; using most recent bundles on all peers instead

Please enlighten me

Thanks in Advance

This error will show up if one of the sh cluster member doesn't have the same no. of search peers

Thanks for the solution @xisura. In verion 7.0.x the feature to replicate the search peers config to other members of the search cluster didn't work for me so I had to use a script/command line on each search cluster member to add all peers.

# when scripted from a remote host
ssh -n [SEARCH_HEAD] "/opt/splunk/bin/splunk add search-server https://[SEARCH_PEER]:8089 -auth [LOCAL_ADMIN_ACCOUNT]:[LOCAL_ADMIN_PASS] -remoteUsername [REMOTE_USER] -remotePassword [REMOTE_PASS]"

OR

# locally 
/opt/splunk/bin/splunk add search-server https://[SEARCH_PEER]:8089 -auth [LOCAL_ADMIN_ACCOUNT]:[LOCAL_ADMIN_PASS] -remoteUsername [REMOTE_USER] -remotePassword [REMOTE_PASS]
