Kept receiving error message at indexer

Hi all,

I'm trying to forward my summarized events from an indexer (machine1) to multiple indexers (machine2 and machine 3) and I'm seeing this error message at machine2 and machine3:

received event for unconfigured/disabled index='summary_forwarders' with source='source::All forwarders - regenerator summary index' host='host::machine1' sourcetype='sourcetype::stash'

I'm really sure that I'm not using summary_forwarders in any way.

Any idea why this happens?

You have a summary index search configured on machine1 that puts data into the index summary_forwarders that doesn't exist on machine2 or machine3. This is probably from the beta SplunkDeploymentMonitor app. Is it installed only on machine1?
