How to disable a search peer via the CLI or REST API call?

Path Finder

Hi Splunkers,

Is there a way to disable a search peer via the CLI or an API call?

Specifically, I would like to set this param via CLI or REST API, and without having to restart splunk:

# distsearch.conf
disabled_servers = <comma separated list of servers>
* A list of configured but disabled search peers.

Thanks.

I have tested the following commands in my 6.3.3 search head, and appears to be working:

To enable search peer:

curl -ku admin https://<host>:<mPort>/servicesNS/-/search/search/distributed/peers/<search_peer_host>%3A<mPort>/ena... -X POST

To disable search peer:

curl -ku admin https://<host>:<mPort>/servicesNS/-/search/search/distributed/peers/<search_peer_host>%3A<mPort>/dis... -X POST
