How to get my Deployment Server to appear in the Distributed Management Console?

Champion

Hi,

I have a dev environment and noticed that my deployment server does not appear in the Distributed Management Console. How do I get it to appear?

Hi. We have DMC running on our the Splunk Deployer for our Search Head Cluster. We are at Splunk 6.3.3.2 right now.

I followed these instructions: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.3.2/DMC/Deploymentsetupsteps and I successfully see our Splunk Deployment servers in the DMC Console.

So what I believe I did was to add the deployment servers as search peers (along with our indexers and heads), turn on distributed mode in the DMC and then I see all these Splunk instances with their correct roles in the DMC.

I do see on http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.3.2/DMC/Configureindistributedmode

Note: If your deployment has nodes running Splunk Enterprise 6.1.x (instead of 6.2.0+), their instance (host) and machine values will not be populated.

There are more instructions on that page on how to add the hosts.
