I'd advise against putting the LM on an indexer.  See https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/9.0.0/Admin/Configurealicensemanager#Choose_the_instanc...

See https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/9.0.0/Indexer/Systemrequirements#Additional_roles_for_t... for recommended places for the LM.  Depending on the size and activity level of your cluster, the CM may be a good place for the LM.  The best place, IMO, however, is the MC.
