Prepare the peers for index replication
After you enable the peers, you might need to perform further configuration to prepare them for index replication.
If you use only the default set of indexes and default configurations, you can start replicating data right away. However, if you need to install apps or change configurations on the peers, you usually must apply the set of changes to all peers. In particular, if you need to add indexes (including indexes defined by an app), you must do so in a way that ensures that the peers use a common set of indexes.
For information on how to configure indexes across cluster peers, read "Configure the peer indexes".
For information on how to configure apps across peers, as well as other peer configuration issues, read "Configure the peers".
Best practice: Forward master node data to the indexer layer
Use forwarders to get your data
