Splunk Enpterprise - Indexer Cluster issue

Why I am not able to see Search Heads connection in Cluster Master Monitoring Console - Overview Dashboard (See 1st image)

However, I did successful connection to Cluster Master from both Search Heads. (See 2nd image)

I referred below documentation (Integrate the search head cluster with an indexer cluster):
https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.2.0/DistSearch/SHCandindexercluster

Background of Architecture:
1 CM,
2 Indexers (Indexer Clustered),
2 Search Heads (Search Head Clustered),
1 Deployer
1 Deployment Server
1 Heavy Forwarder

Splunk Enterprise: 7.2
OS: Centos 7

Splunk License - When you first install a copy of Splunk Enterprise, the installed instance uses a 60 day trial license.

Hi @kishor_pinjarkar_ebay,
at first, did you configured all your Splunk servers (also Deployer and Search Heads) to forward their internal logs to Indexers?
Then, you should see in DMC all the Splunk servers but you have to configure their roles in Monitoring Console Setup [Monitoring Console -- Settings -- Setup].
At https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.0.1/DMC/DMCoverview you can find all the infos you need to do this.

Ciao.

Also checked, Cluster Master Monitoring Console - Instances dashboard.
They are not showing up there.

Is it because of different secret key for each - Indexer Cluster and Search Head Cluster?

Yes, forwarded logs from both Search Heads and Deployer.
Yes, I did role configuration earlier.

Still no luck now. Let me read the docs -https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.2.0/DMC/DMCoverview
