Getting rid of Index Clustering

Path Finder

Hi Team,

I have a single site Indexer clustering in place. I have two indexers and one search head as the members. I want to get rid of Cluster master and eventually Index clustering. I need my Indexers to work independently and share the load.

At the moment my SF=2 and RF=2

What is the best way to achieve this with no/minimum data loss.

Is there any reason to remove indexer clustering? Removing indexer clustering will lead to no data replication across indexers and there will be no high availability of data.

Are you planning to continue indexing to both indexers once your remove indexer clustering, or just one at once?
Dont forget that you'll end up using twice your license amount if you index it on multiple indexers that arent in a cluster.
