Hello, i hope you're very well.

We have in our enterprise 2 Indexer, 1 Master Node, 1 Search head.

We need use DB Connect. I've been reading documentation for db connect but I don't understand where install and configure it.

Sorry i'm new and my english is a little bad

Thanks for you help in advance

Depending on what you need to use DBX for, its often not a bad idea to consider installing it on a standalone forwarder, however, If you want to be able to use DBX for lookups or as an output from searches, then you need to install it on your search heads.

If my comment helps, please give it a thumbs up!

Thanks for your answer @nickhillscpl

We don't have standalone forwarder (heavy forwarder). Can we install only search head? Or must be installed on both?

If you dont have a HF, then yes - you can install it on the search head.
