Getting Data In

Can you help me with an issue when adding a second indexer?

one Search head / one indexer system — try to add a second indexer.

After I added the second indexer, in the search head (SH) — search peers page, it shows the newly added box state is up, but under the SH's monitor console, it still only shows one indexer.

Question:

How do you set the new search peer as the second indexer so that we can use one SH to search data from both indexers?

Any help is appreciated here.

Thanks!

Can you search the data from the 2nd indexer on the Search Head?

For the Monitoring Console, you will have to go to Settings -> General Setup and add the Indexer Server Role for the new indexer. Then it should start showing up in the dashboards.

Thank you for the quick answer! I found the general setup tab and it is working now. 🙂
