What is the location of Common/Shared/Replicated configurations for members in a Splunk 6.2 Search Head Cluster on Windows?

Communicator

I have configured Search Head Clustering in my Distributed Environment which is working Perfectly fine.

I need to know what is the shared location for Search head cluster members from where they share the common configurations. Also if they replicate the configurations, where can I see these configurations in my Search Head Cluster?

Hi,

You can see the configuration of your Search Head in this file: distsearch.conf in $SPLUNKHOME/etc/system/local/ or $SPLUNKHOME/etc/system/default/

shared storage location for Search head cluster members from where they share the common configurations is the share directory for Search head cluster members. It means that each cluster member must have an access to that directory to prevent the fact that if one search head is defective, others members will done his work. To do so, they replicate the configurations.
That shared storage location is: $SPLUNK_HOME/etc directory

Hi NOUMSSI,

Thanks for your Prompt response. Where my saved searches and alerts will get stored? I mean the shared location for them from where other members will pickup those reports, searches, alerts and dashboards ?

Regards,
Sourabh

Yes because reports, searches, alerts and dashboards are contained in one or more app(s) and all apps are storaged in the apps directory ($SPLUNKHOME/etc/apps) wich is a subdirectory of $SPLUNKHOME/etc.
