How to restart the Splunk servers in a deployment server env ?


How to restart the Splunk servers in the below model

  • Deployment server -1
  • Search head -1
  • Indexers -4
  • Heavy forwarders -2

Is there any order of restarting the Splunk servers ?

I do the below command on any changes made to the configurations in the deployment apps.

Splunk reload deploy-server

Can i initiate a restart command from deployment server itself to restart all my splunk servers?

In serverclass.conf on your deployment server, you can control this behaviour by using the restartSplunkd parameter. In the serverclasses where you put this option as true, the deployment clients will restart automatically after receiving new configurations from the deployment server.
