Good afternoon, community.
There was a need to remove lookup files from replication between Search Heads (version 8.1.2).
Tried tweaking the server.conf file and setting the values:
conf_replication_include.lookups = false
conf_replication_summary.blacklist.lookups = (system | (apps / *) | users (/ _ reserved)? / * / *) / lookups / *
If the lookup file is created through the UI, it remains local, but unfortunately this does not help when using the outputlookup command and the file is distributed across the cluster.
Btool on search head:
Search Head Clustering: Configuration Replication (when using the outputlookup command):
Perhaps you have any ideas where else to pay attention to completely close the possibility of replicating lookup files?
You can blacklist your lookup files in distsearch.conf. A few samples are below.
[replicationBlacklist] all_lookups = apps/*/lookups/* lookup_14csv = ...14.csv samplelookup_14csv = apps/sample_app/lookups/14.csv
Thank you for your participation, but unfortunately I have already tried this option earlier 🙂
As I understand it, this setting works only when transferring a bundle from SHC to Indexer nodes.
I don't think there is an option in the inputlookup/outputlookup to exclude a lookup from replicating across the Search head cluster members. I believe this is by design, as you would want the lookup available across SHs.
However, I understand the need for excluding a file/e.g. backup. Could be a good candidate for Splunk Ideas - https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Community/1.0/community/SplunkIdeas
