I forgot pass4SymmKey for Splunk Indexer cluster.

Is there any way to restore it in order to avoid changing the pass4Aymmkey in all cluster members? I need that pass4AymmKey in order to add a new indexer.

[clustering]
pass4SymmKey =

Thanks

You can use the following command to decrypt the pass4SymmKey:

/opt/splunk/bin/splunk show-decrypted --value 'pass4Symmkey_value_here'
