Search head clustering


We have search head cluster with 3 SHs. The search head replication factor is set to 2. We are facing an issue when the scheduled reports are ran in the 3rd search head which does not have the replicated artifacts. Note this (3rd) search head was added to the cluster recently. Could please let us know if we are missing any configuration so that this issue does not occur

Hi Neovenkat,

I think this is due to replication factor. Setting the replication in search head clustering is optional. I have the same environment as like yours. If you see below server.conf, i haven't set the rep factor.
Please remove rep factor and do the splunk restart and try again. I hope it will work.
