Add instances as search peers to the DMC

This topic is a step in the process of setting up the Distributed Management Console for a Splunk Enterprise deployment. See About the Distributed Management Console.

1. Log into the instance on which you want to configure the distributed management console.

2. In Splunk Web, select Settings > Distributed search > Search peers.

3. Click New.

4. Fill in the requested fields and click Save.

5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for each search head, deployment server, license master, and nonclustered indexer. Do not add clustered indexers, but you must add clustered search heads. If you are monitoring an indexer cluster, and you are hosting the DMC on an instance other than the cluster master, you must add the cluster master as a search peer.

Next step

To continue setting up the DMC on a distributed deployment, see Configure DMC in distributed mode.
