Monitoring Console (MC) not recognizing Search Head Cluster (SHC) Label

Ultra Champion

I'm guessing I'm overlooking something obvious here, so reaching out to the community for an extra set of eyes.

I have the label set on the shcluster_label set on the deployer but the "Search Head Cluster(s)" column in the MC Setup never shows the label. As such, I get the warning that "This instance is a search head deployer without a search head cluster label. We recommend you edit this instance to set its search head cluster label."

I even set the shcluster_label in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/server.conf. It matches the value on the SHC members. Btool shows it loading correctly. Deployer and SHC members all show site = site0 (as desired).

I even tried the instructions on http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/DistSearch/SHCconfigurationoverview#Set_the_searc... for post setting the label after building the cluster.

Am I overlooking something? Anyone see anything I'm not?

This is the universe's way of telling you "Seach Head Clustering is bad mojo; turn back now or forever be filled with regret!"

Have you tried the magic "apply settings/changes" in General Setup of the MC to see if it will take the settings?

🙂 It's actually once you apply such config that these messages present themselves. So, yea, I tried that but no luck.

No update yet. A work effort for the fix is in the queue and I used your query to ask for an update.

Was a solution ever found for this because I'm getting the exact same issue.
