How to remove an indexer from the distributed management console?

Champion

Hi,

I removed some indexers from Splunk, using the offline command, but they are all still showing up in my distributed management console, and listed as "unreachable". How do I remove them from the DMC?

You can just remove them from Settings / Distributed search / Search peers

Did that, restarted DMC - didn't make a difference.

See if this works:

Open the DMC, click on menu called "settings" -> general setup -> edit next to the indexer -> disable monitoring

It gets more interesting...

The "Overview" page shows 18 indexers and 12 unreachable (the 12 that I decommed via "offline"). The general setup page does not show them at all. I went into the "managementconsole_overview" view, and it lists the following:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<view template="pages/app.html" type="html">
    <label>Overview</label>
</view>

I looked for that html page under ../etc, but found nothing. Thoughts?

you need to disable it as search peer Settings / Distributed search / Search peers

then you need to remove it from dmc settings" -> general setup -> edit next to the indexer -> disable monitoring
