@AzmathShaik,

  1. Entire Indexer Cluster
  2. Cluster Master
  3. Deployer Node
  4. 3 Search heads (SHC)

should be added as slaves to the License Master.

So, basically everything except universal forwarders needs to be added as Slaves in your case.

Please read: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.4.2/Admin/Configurealicensemaster

Hope this Helps!

Thanks,
Raghav

Either through server.conf where under license stanza you provide the uri to LM OR

via GUI where you select , associate with a license master and provide the mgmt_uri for LM
