We want to add Q server to our development activities, where we used to have only one server earlier, which is enterprise standalone splunk instance, to be little precise i name it as 'A' which is also the production one. Now we have to maintain P and Q server separately for production and testing.
Current splunk enterprise instance 'A' is a standalone and we continue with the production activities on it. But. to have Q server live. we have to move the Apps and data (A/Production server) in index to Q server for testing.
Before migrating, i was trying to point splunk enterprise Q server's(B instance) search head to splunk enterprise P server's(A instance) indexer. As this could make our Q server availability in a faster way.
Enterprise standalone splunk Q(B) search head -> Enterprise standalone splunk P(A) indexer
It could be great, if i was guided to configure the above one or any directions in terms of distributed or indexer clustering,or adding peers.
