We are going to install a new indexer on same host where our old indexer is running as our splunk license is going to expire. Can you please let me know how we can copy the whole data(configuration and all other data) from old indexer to the new indexer.
Thanks & Regards, Kratika

One of my early questions was similar to this. I had one indexer running and a few days later installed a new one remotely. When I set it to forward it only forwarded everything from that point. Here is my question
The answer I got was that I needed to physically copy/paste the buckets over from one to the other, I would assume the same case for the configuration files
Here is the link on migrating indexes http://www.splunk.com/wiki/Community:MoveIndexes
Hope this helps

You'll find all the info you need here.
Maybe i'm misunderstanding, but why not just upgrade the license?

If you are on windows and use xcopy. I will simplify for sake of space
xcopy "C:<path to indexes>" "\<remote indexer="">C:<path to index>" (options ex: /e /c /s ...)
