The "splunk apply shcluster-bundle" command could be used on a member of a SHC that was not a deployer. Since a non-deployer typically has an empty shcluster directory, this command would wipe out all apps on all members.
Some time in future Splunk plan to improve error message for "splunk apply shcluster-bundle" and warn the user if there are no apps to deploy, i.e. if $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/shcluster/apps is effectively empty.
