Create your server instances (2) and Install Linux.
Install Splunk Enterprise.
Create admin user.
On the one that is to be the Search Head:
1: Configure outputs.conf to send stuff to the Indexer
2: Configure Settings -> Distributed Search -> Search Peers -> Add to be able to search data on the Indexer.

Everything is an Indexer by default. It should be listening on port 9997 out of the box.
