Splunk Search

How to migrate search app content from an old Splunk instance to new search head cluster members using the deployer?

Experts,

We have a Splunk instance which is 3 years old and need to migrate the content to new search head cluster. We have pushed all the custom apps through the deployer. Questions is, how to push the old search app's content to the new search head cluster members using the deployer? I know we have to create a TA in the shcluster/apps directory, but it for some reason, it doesn't like to push the search app. Also, what's the best way to deploy /etc/users/ from the old standalone Splunk search head to the new SHC using the deployer? Just copy all the user directories and place them under /shclusters/users/? This deploying search content is a little confusing to me.

Thanks in advance,
Raghav

Hi @hgrow,

Thank you for your reply. I did go through the documentation. I learnt that search app has be renamed before pushing to the shc and leave local/* out of it.

Thank you for your time
