Configured New Non-Clustered Indexer, events not showing up

Path Finder

We have added a new indexer (not clustered) to the pool of our other 2 indexers. One heavy forwarder was pointed to all 3 and these events show up when searching on the new indexer, but the events for the new indexer do not show up in the search heads, nor do they show up in the other indexers.

Is there a configuration setting that was missed here?

When you install a new indexer, you have to run a configuration at search head to make the indexer available to searching. Following the steps below:

  1. Log into Splunk Web on the search head and click Settings at the top of the page.
  2. Click Distributed search in the Distributed Environment area.
  3. Click Search peers.
  4. On the Search peers page, select New.
  5. Specify the search peer, along with any authentication settings.

Note: You must precede the search peer's host name or IP address with the URI scheme, either "http" or "https".

  1. Click Save.
  2. Repeat for each of the search head's search peers.
