I have 2 peer nodes in my cluster - 1 of them was acting as a stand-alone indexer while the other is a fresh installation.
I had enabled clustering on the stand-alone indexer initially, but due to some errors, I disabled it.
I know have clustering enabled on both the peers and they are both recognized by the master node.
However, I now see the following messages - Search peer has the following message: Too many streaming errors to target=. Not rolling hot buckets on further errors to this target. (This condition might exist with
other targets too. Please check the logs.)
I understand re-enabling clustering on a disabled peer node is a known issue. I read this document - http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.1.3/Indexer/Bucketreplicationissues
The suggestion is to clean the hot buckets or remove the standalone buckets on the peer before re-enabling it. There dont seem to be any instructions on how to do this.
Also, will I lose an indexed data by doing this? As I mentioned, the node was acting as a stand-alone indexer and was indexing important data before enabling clustering.
