1)Test sourcetype and index config files to make sure they work.

2)Move the config files into the configuration bundle under the master-apps/_cluster/local subdirectory on the master node.

3)On the master node dashboard:

-Click Settings in the upper right corner of Splunk Web.

-In the Distributed environment group, click Clustering.

-Click the Edit button on upper right corner of the dashboard and select the Distribute Configuration Bundle option.

-Click the Distribute Configuration Bundle button (NOTE: The distribution may cause a peer restart)

-Click Push Changes to continue.

we have enabled cluster setup with the below

  1. cluster master node (1 node)
  2. cluster peer indexing node (3 node)
  3. search head (2 nodes)

In this case, if we create a new index / sourcetype in master cluster nodes, how do we sync the other nodes with the same configuration(cluster peer and cluster search head). or do we need to create the same configuration manually in all nodes.

What do you mean by "sync the sourcetype"? What do you mean by master node? It seems like you have some terminology that you need to get straight first of all.
