Copy splunk_essentials_8_2 into the deployer's $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/shcluster/apps.

I am having a similar issue but in my case the complete app gets removed from all shc members. I feel like removing the hash is more of a hack than a solution.

This is a default app that shouldn't be removed; seems like a bug to me.

Hi mate.

It's the same issue. The whole app gets removed from all SHC members. It's a hack indeed, but only solution since the app got removed and there is no way to put it back without changing the hash.

Indeed. It's a bug...


Instead of copying the directory over from another SH you should re-deploy the app via deployer.

An upvote would be appreciated and Accept Solution if it helps!

Just delete following line: '/opt/ee_splunk/splunk/etc/apps/splunk_essentials_8_2/default/app.conf
From the splunk manifest in /opt/ee_splunk/splunk

Sometimes Apps created during the installation ( The ones that splunk keeps a manifest), if they get pushed by the SHC deployer,  the checksum can get modified when the members get it.

I had the same issue with this App and the only way I could get it working was by deleting the record...

The App booked a one way flight to Belize when I created the Search Head Cluster.
