Turn on Monitoring Console Distributed Mode via CLI or REST

New Member

I'm trying to automate the build of my Monitoring Console instance.

In the documentation http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.2.1/DMC/Deploymentsetupsteps it says that I should:

  1. first add the instances being ,monitored as search peers (I've found a cli command for that)

  2. then turn on the distributed mode in the GUI like this: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.2.1/DMC/Configureindistributedmode to populate the splunkmonitoringconsole_assets.conf and assets.csv lookup (documented here: docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.2.1/DMC/HowtheDMCworks )

I'm wondering is there a way to automate enabling Monitoring Console Distributed Mode step?

Here are the changes that this causes:

In $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/splunk_monitoring_console/local/app.conf it sets this in the [install] stanza:

is_configured = 1

In $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/distsearch.conf it sets this in the [distributedSearch:dmc_group_indexer] stanza:

default = false

In /opt/splunk/etc//apps/splunk_monitoring_console/local/data/ui/nav/default.xml it makes many changes, so it is easier to post the delta, which is this:
