Deployment Architecture

When new search peers can't be added to the indexer cluster due to administration issues, how do you add new search peers to the search head cluster?

Hello Experts,

Currently, I have set up both the search head cluster and the indexer cluster in my production environment and all indexing and searching activities work perfectly. However, there are also standalone indexers outside of my environment which are handled by another team in a different network segment and are required to be added as search peers, but can't be added as indexer cluster members due to administration issues.

With this situation, can I just simply add those standalone indexers as search peers for my search head cluster from the GUI? Or is there another additional procedure to be added?

Thank you and please advise.

No, adding via GUI should work fine.

Note that you can let the Cluster replicate this for you, see:

Noted. Thank you for your confirmation. I first thought that different types of search peers can't be configured together. Seems there's no issue to add manually.
