I have a search head that communicates with 3 non-clustered indexers ( autolb distribution of data). Indexed data is distributed evenly across all three indexers.
Now I need to add a remote indexer to the search head but I don't want to add it to the other indexers group. It needs to be separate because the remote indexer is managed by someone else. However I need it to communicate to my search head so I can monitor the data contained in that remote indexer.
Thank you, I guess in my environment I just need to add the indexer as a "search peer" just wanted to make sure that something was not accidentally created where the remote indexer was auto added/joined to the others in an autolb fashion. But it does not.
