2) And what the difference between general pass4symmkey and shcluster pass4symmkey , my pass4symmkey the shclustering one is same across all cluster members not the pass4symmkey which is under general stanza , which one should need to same across all search heads ?
pls note that the security_key (pass4SymmKey) under shclustering stanza is used and should be same both in your deployer and each member of the SHC. The key in general is auto-generated as part of splunk install.
I suggest, clean and re-initialize all the instances and follow the steps again and use splunk show shcluster-status to check the status of the cluster after boot-strap.
