Splunk IT Service Intelligence

Is there a formal process for copying Splunk IT Service Intelligence to another server?

I have set up Splunk IT Service Intelligence on my standalone Splunk server, but now have a need to expand. I have recently added a search head to this indexer, so now the responsibilities are split up a little. I copied the apps directory along with my user's directory to the new box. Everything works fine, ITSI copied over, but none of the services and or KPI's are there. I imagine they must not be saved or exist within the apps directory. Is there another set of folders I should be copying?

Is there a formal process for copying ITSI over to another server?

Splunk please see to it this Message makes it to the Splunk Developers
This is a formal request for Splunk to look into a Master Configuration for splunk much like the configuration Database in Microsoft Sharepoint where when you add a brand new node to an existing implementation you don't have to manually make edits or copy files over to the new server in order for it to be up to speed with the existing configurations like other nodes within that farm.

Ideally if we stand up a new node, whichever server you've designated as your Master, or Master Config, that's where all other servers where go to in order to retrieve their reports, dashboards, lookups, KVstore, csv''s apps, etc, etc, etc... This way we don't have to individually manage content across multiple web servers or go out and buy a 3rd party tool to manage synchronizing content.

The benefit of having a master configuration that all other nodes copy from is it will be easy to scale out and move services around. LET THE CLONING BEGIN SPLUNK 6.5 we want this!

Found the answer,

Best way is to package up the Kv Store and restore on new ITSI heads:
