We have a master with peers configuration. When we do a configuration change in the indexer we need to restart. All the changes go on correctly. But after sometime we get a message that the Indexer may be down. In alerts we also get " Unable to distribute to peer named Server:8089 at uri Server:8089 because peer has status = "Down" ".
So what is the correct way to restart/ how can we solve this issue in distributed environment?
Thank you for the reply. I was talking about the indexers where its acting as search peers. If i create an index i have to restart the splunkd service alone in that particular server. Will the "splunk reload deploy-client" command able to do the job for me?
