2 node cluster master reporting single peer to search head when there are 2 indexers

Have 2 node Indexer cluster with a separate cluster master instance and separate SH instance, however when the SH is configured, it only shows 1 peer in the cluster as per attachment alt text

Why would the cluster master report as 1 peer to the SH when it has 2 peers listed in cluster configuration ?

Cluster master reports replication and search factor OK. see below

Where is your Search Head pointing? To the CM or to the Indexer? In a clustered configuration, your search heads should all point to the Cluster Master. The cluster master will then distribute the list of indexers for search.

Hi, found out there was an issue with the Firewall rule connecting the Clustered SH, when the FW rule was opened (8080/8089) it worked 🙂
