Hi @vijreddy30,

are you speaking of HA using a single site clusters (even if machines are located in more sites) or DR using a multisite cluster?

they are really different!

in the first case you have to configure your Replication Factor and Search Factor so in one site you have a full searchable copy of your data.

Anyway, in both cases you can see at how to configure the Indexer Cluster and at how to configure a Search Head Cluster.

The management servers (Cluster Master, Deployer, Deployment Server, License Master and Monitoring Console) , are unique in the Splunk Architecture and the DR site will work also without them (for a little period): they aren't a single Point of Failure.

Eventually, you could consider to have a turned off copy of them in the secondary site.

You can find a description of these architecture at
