Smartstore configuration multisite cluster

Hi,

I am working on a project for a client to implement Splunk as a primary logging platform. I have designed the solution to use a multisite cluster across two aws regions. I am struggling to get how i can deploy smartstore in the two regions, which basically will have ind in region A connect to smartstore and ind in region B conn to smartstore in region B. Can you provide an example of this type of configuration.

Regards

Ravi

Hi, Thx for the response. I am talking about a multisite cluster stretched two regions. This is a single cluster across two regions.

It sounds like you want the indexer clusters to share a SmartStore.  Don't.  Each cluster should have it's own, separate S2 .

Isn't it what a multi-site smartstore should have, a single smartstore shared by the indexers from two sites that are part of the same cluster?  

Also if they are part of the same cluster, wouldn't Cluster Manager push the indexes.conf across all sites which means, the remote volume details has to be the same across the indexers on each site (like the endpoint, bucket name, credentials)?
