How can we convert multisite search head clustering into single site search head clustering?

Path Finder

Hi Team,
I could find Splunk doc for converting multisite indexer clustering into single site indexer clustering.
But I'm unable to find document for converting multisite search head clustering into single-site search head clustering.
Is this possible to convert?

Could you please help me here.

Thanks in advance

yes it is possible
sites in splunk are logical terms.
you can simply change the site = <site(n) in server.conf
if you have search affinity configured, your search heads will look at the site they are affiliated with

hope it helps

Do we need to remove site= site1 and multisite=true settings in server.conf file in all search heads?

yes, that will do the trick
read here as you can also keep multisite=true and have splunk ignore the site affiliation by changing the site value to site0
