When i am trying to execute search head status command "splunk show shcluster-status -auth admin:password" from command promt at one of my Search head, It just return back to console without showing any status.

I have admin rights at the servers. What can be the issue ? Why i am not able to see the status of my search head cluster

Is it happening on only one of the nodes or on all nodes ?

One reason could be that this SH is not properly added to SHC and is not part of SHC, hence the status command doesn't return anything

Hi mahamed_splunk,

I am able to run the initialize command but while creating a captain by running bootstrap command

splunk bootstrap shcluster-captain -servers_list ":,:,..."

I am getting error as "splunk does not recognize bootstrap command. Please check command or go to Splunk help".

Please let me know why this error occurs as in documentation this command is mentioned
