Currently working on automation a Splunk build and am wondering where DMC roles and DMC distributed mode are defined from a config file perspective.

The main thing this looks at is all under the splunk_monitoring_console

lookups/assets.csv
local/splunk_monitoring_console_assets.conf

And the real kicker is normally in

/opt/splunk/etc/system/local/distsearch.conf

This is where we create all the search groups.

Okie

These are generated, right? Not for edit.
lookups/assets.csv
local/splunk_monitoring_console_assets.conf

But how to edit
/opt/splunk/etc/system/local/distsearch.conf
to have in DMC remote peers in 'Configured' state, not in 'New' state?

If you add manualy configuredPeers=peer:8089 to local/splunk_monitoring_console_assets.conf, it will be configured. But I guess that this is not right way.

You will need to click on Apply Change for its state to change from New to Configured.
