Unable to add second node to the search index host node setting
Our application infra has a single active node & a stand by node (though Pega is running it is not added to the load balancer) which will get rolled over automatically when the active node goes down.With this landscape when i try to add the stand by node as a second search index host node, the system throws the error message "•** Unable to add 14E37A38BD13BF5206630FEE as indexing node; It seems to be offline. Please verify the nodeID specified". Any help in resolving the above issue will be highly appreciated.
Also there is no proper documentation for multinode search configuration (Exact steps involved in configuring from DSS to the search landing page settings) for Pega 7.2.

Are both nodes able to communicate with each other for search (default ports 9300-9400) and for cluster communication (default ports 5700-5800)? If you check the pr_sys_statusnodes table, does it show the "standby" node as being something other than online?
I would guess the issue is one of the above. As far as multinode search configuration, there isn't anything else to do other than adding the additional nodes after the first has finished building the initial indexes.
We too have similar issue in our environment where we have 3 nodes. In pr_sys_statusnodes table, where do we need to check if its showing as "Standby" node. I did not find this value in any of the column.
