Error while adding standalone indexer to search head cluster

Communicator

Hi , We have a distributed deployment environment , we have 6 indexers clustered , we have 3 search head clustered , we are adding a standalone new indexer , we are not adding this indexer to the existing cluster.

We want the data that is lying on this standalone indexer to be searchable from our search head cluster , I tried to add it through GUI by going to distributed search but after adding it to one search head, its got added successfully, while I am trying it to add to other search heads its not adding- it's saying it encountered the following error while trying to save:

Failed to proxy search-server command request to Captain. Reason : ERROR: A peer with uri of https://xxxx already exists.

Please help me.
