Deployment Architecture

Restart order/procedure after updating server.conf with new master_uri & pass4SymmKey

Hi Guys,

I have:

1 x Search Node
1 x Master Node
 - 2 x Peer Nodes
1 x Deployment Node

I've updated the master_uri & pass4SymmKey in the Search node and restarted it Splunk via the GUI, this worked fine and the license page is showing the new values.  However, I am a bit reluctant to just change/restart the other nodes for fear of any bucket/replication issues.

Am I ok to update the Master Node the same and perform a normal restart? Then update the Peer Nodes and perform a Rolling Restart?

If not, what it is the best way to apply the conf changes and apply them? I did try searching the documentation but I got a bit lost.

Thank you in advance.
