Deployment Architecture

captain fails to bootstrap in new search head cluster

New Member

I have 3 new splunk servers which have been Initialized to be used in a cluster and a deployer.

when trying to bootstrap the captain i get the following error:
Failed to Set Configuration. One potential reason is captain could not hear back from all the nodes in a timeout period. Ensure all to be added nodes are up, and increase the raft timeout. If all nodes are up and running, look at splunkd.log for appendEntries errors due to mgmt_uri mismatch .

upon looking at the splunkd.log file i see a whole raft of these errors:
