We want to move previously indexed data into a new Splunk instance and wanted to make sure that doesn't count against our daily license.
I found the link below in a previously asked question but the link was dead.
Can anyone confirm that it doesn't count?
As long as you're not re-indexing the data (exporting raw data from old index and re-indexing it) , the instance migration will NOT be counted against the license usage.
FYI, the updated link is this: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.5.0/Installation/MigrateaSplunkinstance
