Splunk Search

lookup access across non-clustered search heads

Explorer

Hello experts and splunkers,

I have a splunk environment which consists of 2 Search Heads, which are not clustered - let's say SH1 and SH2, and 2 Indexers, which are clustered. (Please assume, due to an organisational reason, I can't cluster SH1 and SH2)

There is an existing app deployed in SH1 - let's say App1.

We are developing a new app in SH2 - let's say App2.

App1 has a lookup (let's say lookup1) and App2 in SH2 wants to use the lookup1.
I don't seem to be able to find a way to configure to enable App2 to access the lookup1.
Is it possible at all?

If the lookup file is not on the local SH then no app can access it. You may want to set up a cron job to copy the lookup file between systems.
