I've added the indexer as a peer on the search head and can edit the roles of both the indexer and the search head from there.
When i log into the splunk instance (indexer) i go to distributed management console and only the server appears (indexer) there is no remote servers for the search head etc...
any idea why this is happening? seems they are linked... but they aren't?
running 6.2.2 on both servers.
