Error: socket_error=connect timeout while bringing search head captain up in GCP instance.

I am getting below error while bringing up the search head captain. The instance is hosted on Google Cloud Platform:

/services/shcluster/member/consensus/pseudoid/last_known_state?output_mode=json, socket_error=Connect Timeout

I followed the below link to setup the search head clustering:
https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.0.1/DistSearch/SHCdeploymentoverview

Also, tried the solution:
https://answers.splunk.com/answers/764708/search-head-cluster-71-presents-status-lineerror-c.html

I am not sure whether this is issue with Splunk or GCP.

Did you ever get an answer to this question? I ask because I'm running into a similar situation in the set up of my VMs. Same error message. I validated port connectivity (openssl and curl telnet) so I know that isn't the issue.

Tried cleaning up the splunk cache and reinstalling the Splunk, still facing the issue.
