I am rebuilding a SH cluster from scratch. I've followed the documentation carefully to this point. I have the shcluster captain bootstrapped and splunk show shcluster-status shows the captain as the only member, but the bootstrapping process failed to add my member nodes due to comms errors. Pretty sure I've got those fixed now.
current_member_uri is pointing back to this same node. It should point to a node that is already a member of a cluster.
Obviously, I have checked and re-checked the uri, which I believe is correct (https://ip-address-of-captain:8089), and that is set right in server.conf on both sides. There is no IP conflict and the servers have no issue communicating.
