Alerting

In a search head cluster, is it expected behavior for only the captain to have all the alerts, not the other cluster members?

Hi at all,

I'm passing from a single Search Head (with four Indexers) to a Search Head Cluster.
I have three Search Heads: one that is working alone, and the other two are configured as a SH cluster.
I enabled alerts both in the standalone SH and in the clustered ones.
I checked if the standalone SH has the same triggered alerts of the other two SHs, and this is correct.
The strange thing I found is that in the clustered SHs, one (the Captain) has all the alerts and the other none!

Can someone help me to understand if this is expected behavior or not, before putting this cluster in production (inserting in it also the stand alone SH)?
I already saw documentation and answers, but from your experience, anyone found a behavior like this?

Thank you.
Bye.
Giuseppe

Probably the problem was that a Search Head Cluster must have at least three nodes.

Nope I haven't seen such behavior.
