Search head looks at cluster and separate index

In the middle of creating a new environment with an index cluster. On our current setup we have just one indexer. Is it possible to configure the new search head to search both the old indexer and new cluster when a search is preformed? without changing any settings on the old indexer as it is still in use.

Hi jerrythoms,
yes it's possible.
You have to separately configure in [Settings -- Distributed Search] the stand alone Indexers and the cluster.
Anyway there isn't any setting on Indexers, only on Search Head.

Bye.
