Splunk Distributed search peer not working as expected. There are multiple errors logs


Hi All,

We have 4 search head (non clustered) and 16 search peers (non clustered) . Each search head points to all 16 search peers.

Recently one of our search head was getting freeze and no search was working. So we tried disabling and enabling the search peers the problem was still the same. So while testing we disabled first three search peers and the search started working.

But now though the search is working but when we try to enable any one or all three disabled search peers the search head again gets freeze and no search works.

I have tried restarting the search head and peers but no improvement.
Deleted and added the search peers in config file from server still no improvement.

Below are the errors logs i have noted on search head for those peers. All the disabled peers have similar error logs:

01-02-2019 02:12:06.146 +0100 WARN DistributedPeerManager - Unable to distribute to peer named
at uri= using the uri-scheme=https because peer has status="Down". Please verify uri-scheme,
connectivity to the search peer, that the search peer is up, and an adequate level of system resources are available.
See the Troubleshooting Manual for more information.

Any kind of help will be really helpful.

Sorry for being late on this. I was able to solve this by copying the bundles from working indexer to non working indexer.
