I am wondering if one Search Head Cluster can search across multiple Indexer Clusters.
I have found this doc http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.3.3/Indexer/Configuremulti-clustersearch
but it doesn't particularly say anything about a Search Head Cluster.
Can someone tell me if it's possible and where I can find the documentation?
Yes you can configure multiple indexer cluster in search head cluster, please refer http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.3.3/Indexer/Configuremulti-clustersearch
It's running fine in our environment.
Tried to add it and listed the master connected. But then it flaps about not being able to communicate with the license server. Which is odd as the mast is also the license master. Any ideas?
Any proposals or recommendations for us.
When we have two multisite clusters where we want to connect from one search head cluster, should I name those site 1 to 2 and then 3 to 4 and use 1 & 2 again with shc sites (which are physically same as in MSC 1) or should SHCs has also own site numbers? All those sites are in separate network zone /segments. On MSC there haven’t any primary and secondary sites.
Currently site1 and site2 are already in “production” use. Secondary MSC is just under constructions as nes SHC which will be replace current on site1 & site2.
