I changed the path of index data from D drive to New drive.
It was successful to change and possible to search logs in the new Drive.
But I found the same indexname folder in D drive and there is the "datamodel_summary" folder.
I would like to change only the index.So I would not like to change Splunk_DB in splunk-launch.conf.
Is it happened not to change Splunk_DB in splunk-launch.conf?
Also what should I do for Splunk to create the "datamodel_summary" folder in new Drive?
I appreciate any suggestions.
Splunk : 6.5.3
OS : Windows server 2012 R2
[test-index] coldPath = $SPLUNK_DB\test-index\colddb homePath = $SPLUNK_DB\test-index\db thawedPath = $SPLUNK_DB\test-index\thaweddb frozenTimePeriodInSecs = 34300800 coldToFrozenDir = D:\splunk_data\archive\test-index
[test-index] coldPath = E:\splunk_data\splunk\test-index\colddb homePath = E:\splunk_data\splunk\test-index\db thawedPath = E:\splunk_data\splunk\test-index\thaweddb frozenTimePeriodInSecs = 34300800 coldToFrozenDir = E:\splunk_data\archive\test-index
This is the way to change:
1.Stop splunk service.
2.Move D:\splunk_data\splunk\i-filter to E:\splunk_data\splunk\i-filter.
3.Change the indexes.conf.
4.Start splunk service.
