Step E: Add the Secondary Node

Once you've set up the leader node, add the secondary node to the cluster.

To add the secondary node

  1. On the web interface for the leader node, choose Nodes and click Add Node > Ingest Capable.

  2. In the Add New Ingest Capable Cluster Node dialog, complete the fields: Enter the hostname or IP address of the secondary node, and the password for the elemental user.

  3. Choose Create.

    The secondary node is added to the cluster. This operation may take several minutes. After a few minutes, the node is added to the cluster, shaded red on the web interface. When the addition is complete, the node is shaded green.
