Does indexes.conf get generated as part of the initialization of an indexer and/or the initialization of an indexer cluster?

Communicator

I am just building an indexer cluster with replication factor of 9 using 15 indexers configured as peers on the master. Running Splunk 6.2.2 on Debian hosts with Debian upgraded to current rev. This all sets up correctly except for one factor: I don't have an indexes.conf anywhere on either the master or the peers. Is this expected when first setting up the cluster?

Did you look in the default location on the peer nodes ($SPLUNKHOME/etc/slave-apps/cluster/default)? There should be an indexes.conf file there.
