Search Head Cluster bundle push failed with error Network-layer error: Read Timeout


Issue: We are on Splunk version 6.6.3 and when we push the Search Head Cluster Bundle from the Deployer to Search Head Cluster Member it fails with error

Deployer's "splunk apply shcluster-bundle" output
[splunk662T]# ./bin/splunk apply shcluster-bundle -target ""
Warning: Depending on the configuration changes being pushed, this command might initiate a rolling restart of the cluster members.

Please refer to the documentation for the details. Do you wish to continue? [y/n]: y

Error while deploying apps to first member: Error while updating app=unix on target= Network-layer error: Read Timeout

The workaround is to disable conditional expansion by setting following on the deployer and the Search Head.

Which file would those be set in? The [search] stanza sounds like limits.conf but I don't see this setting in the spec.

When we hit this problem restarting the deployer seems to help but a solution that doesn't require waiting for it to fail and restarting would be much better.
