Is it possible to deploy a single app from Deployer to Search Head without losing all apps already installed?


Hi all,

I would like to know if it is possible to deploy a single new app from the Deployer to a Search Head without losing all the apps already installed in the Search Head.

Now the shcluster / apps directory is empty and I would like to know if I can just insert the new app and push it with the command "splunk apply shcluster-bundle" with some special arguments that allow me not to delete all the other apps.

I'm pretty sure that's not possible.  You'll need to re-install the apps on the deployer before applying the shcluster bundle.

If this reply helps you, Karma would be appreciated.
