Deployment Architecture

Can you use both mounted and shared bundles with the same index cluster?

I have a dedicated search pool using mounted bundles to talk to our index cluster.

Can I also have a standalone search head using normal shared bundles talk to the same clustered indexers?

I'm currently using Splunk 5, upgrades to 6 are a few months out.

seems possible.

As with a non-clustered distributed search, you can have multiple search heads, and the search heads can function as a single unit, known as a search head pool. And, just like non-clustered distributed searches, you can use mounted bundles to reduce the amount of data that gets passed from the search head to the peers.

Yann is correct. If search heads aren't configured to use mounted bundles they default to the normal method (sending the bundle over the wire to the indexer.)
