How to delete a Splunk Indexer cluster and configurations under the Distributed Management Console (DMC)?

New Member

I have few queries as listed in the attached doc, please take a look and suggest.

We have added a new Indexer clustering (Genesis Splunk Master Node) in our test environment which have 2 indexer+1 Search Head + 1 Heavy Forwarder and 1 Master+deployment+cluster+license server.

Questions
Why are we not seeing any nodes under this group in Instances?

One Dummy Genesis (Indexer Cluster) is created by mistake (i'm sure I didn’t save but no idea) and not able to delete this cluster and can see master node under this group. We want to remove this how to do this please?

Can't find my instances? How to get them here I can see all my nodes under Distributed Management Console (DMC)->Settings->General Setup and the Indexer cluster name is Genesis Splunk Master Node

Can’t find the instances (Genesis Splunk Master Node) details under the Indexing - > Indexer clustering screen in DMC

This Dummy Genesis cluster under instances - DMC needs to be deleted, please help.

Thanks,
AJ

hi ajaykumarbs,
you can go to settings -> MC -> settings (in the nav bar) -> General Setup and now click edit on the instance you would like to delete
also go to settings (splunk black nav bar top right) -> distributed search -> Search Peers -> remove the peer you would like
Hope i understood your question
