How to move a summary index from a search head to the indexers?


I don't have a lot of experience with summary indexes, but the previous admin created some schedule reports and set summary indexing to an index on the local search head box.

I have to decom this physical server and move the searchhead to the cloud, so I will tar it and move it.

But I don't want the summary index - indexing locally to an instance that is a dedicated searchhead...

Please advise how I can configure the summary to send to the indexers (which are non-clustered, autolb).
Thank you

Thank you, one quick follow up,
do I create these confs in system/local or in the search app or launcher app where I find the base schedule searches... not sure which directory to insert those...
