Hi @ephremzw 

Where are you running this command are you running it one of the search heads or on the search head deployer ?  this needs to be executed on one the search head members 

Just for try 

Before executing the  bootsrap,  try to all the splunk shcluster members after they are up the try to initialize the execution
