In a Search Head Clustering (SHC) deployment, the DCN Scheduler must not be deployed on a dedicated search head, and not on any individual Search Head in the SHC.

if we can deploy it on dedicate search head or individual search head in SHC, then where we will setup a DCS.

on this page, there is a diagram... this diagram will clarify your confusion..
the DCN must be deployed on a dedicated search head (outside of Search Head Cluster)....
DCN should not be deployed on any search head which is part of the search head cluster(SHC).
