How to push out an indexer bundle after rebuilding a server?

Hi,

I had to rebuild an indexer, and it's now up and running, but it doesn't have the most recent updates that we have done from the cluster master, as the server was down when these were pushed out. Can I just do a push from the cluster master, or do I need to create a dummy change to force the cluster master to recognize that something has changed?

You can run cluster-bundle-status from cluster master to check if the new indexer added has the active_bundle/latest checksum, if not you can apply a cluster-bundle(I hope that should work)

Hi,

if the server was readded to the cluster it should have gotten the bundle. If not, as far as I know, you need a change to push a new one.

Thanks. I ran the command, and it appears that the cluster master thinks that the bundle is there, but they aren't. I'm looking at that directory, and the updated files are missing. Can I just do a push again, or do I need to make an actual change?

Never mind. All set. My bad.

so, you don't see a latest bundle when you did apply bundle-push from cluster-master..??
If not, you might have to make a dummy change to get a new checksum or do a rolling restart form cluster-master if that helps.

you can try but it should tell you that all peers have the newest bundle
