Adding new indexer to indexer cluster

Contributor

If a new indexer is added to the cluster. Do we need to manually push the cluster-bundle from master to indexers OR Cluster-bundle will be automatically pushed to new indexer once it communicates with the master?

I couldn't find a reference that details the process in the docs, but in my experience new indexers get the bundle and are ready for production use immediately.
