Setup a cluster without replication - ERROR ClusteringMgr

I'm trying to set up a cluster with three nodes, one that will function as the master/search head and two indexers. I do not want to replicate data between the indexers. However, when I enable clustering on the master node and set replication factor = 0 and search factor = 0, splunkd won't start with the following error:
ERROR ClusteringMgr - Failure to load cluster config (server.conf) Error = origin has an invalid count:0. .

Setting replication and search factors to 1 will allow splunkd to start successfully. Based on my testing it doesn't seem possible to have a cluster without replication, but I can't find any documentation that confirms my suspicion. Should this be possible?

0 means no copies of a bucket, which makes no sense. you need to have at least 1 copy of your data (it won't be replicated). repfactor=2 means two copies, so there will be one replicated copy
