I have created a 5 node index cluster and its working fine. Now I created an index in master indexer and added some data. But I am not able to replicate that index to all the slave indexer.
I added repFactor = auto to my indexes.conf file in /opt/splunk/etc/apps/search/local/ directory. but not working then I created a same file in /opt/splunk/etc/system/local as well, But again its not working. Can someone suggest where I am doing wrong.

Below is my indexes.conf file

[test]
coldPath = $SPLUNK_DB/test/colddb
enableDataIntegrityControl = 0
enableTsidxReduction = 0
homePath = $SPLUNK_DB/test/db
maxTotalDataSizeMB = 512000
thawedPath = $SPLUNK_DB/test/thaweddb
repFactor = auto

Hi,
1. You should never make cluster related edits under /system/local
2. Your indexes.conf file shouldn't be in '/opt/splunk/etc/apps/search/local' but instead in /etc/master-apps folder on the cluster master.

All configs to slave indexers MUST be pushed from /etc/master-apps and the recieving slaves will save those configs (indexes.conf, props.conf etc) under /etc/slave-apps.

Please check your configs and you will see that your test index will be there once you get your directory strucutre sorted.
