Deployment Architecture

Are there any issues with running a Search Head Cluster Deployer and a multisite Indexer Cluster Master on the same instance?


I'm wondering if there are any issues with running Deployer (for search head clustering) on the same instance as a multi-site Indexer cluster Master. I'd like to have a single instance run as the Deployer, Indexer Cluster Master, and License Master.

This section of the documentation provides some details on cluster master/deployer compatibility:

Hi ctripod, you won't have any issues running those three services on the same box. I've personally worked with an environment that has the indexer CM and SHCluster Master on the same box. The license master should be no problem.
