Connect the Discover and Command appliances to Explore appliances

After you deploy an Explore appliance, you must establish a connection from all ExtraHop Discover and Command appliances to the Explore appliance before you can query for stored records.

Important:If you have an Explore cluster of three or more Explore nodes, connect the Discover appliance to each Explore node so that the Discover appliance can distribute the workload across the entire Explore cluster.
Note:If you manage all of your Discover appliances from a Command appliance, you only need to perform this procedure from the Command appliance.
  1. Log into the Admin UI of the Discover or Command appliance.
  2. In the ExtraHop Explore Settings section, click Connect Explore Appliances.
  3. Click Add New.
  4. In the Explore node field, type the hostname or IP address of any Explore appliance in the Explore cluster.
  5. For each additional Explore appliance in the cluster, click Add New and enter the individual hostname or IP address in the corresponding Explore node field.


  6. Click Save.
  7. Confirm that the fingerprint on this page matches the fingerprint of Node 1 of the Explore cluster.
  8. In the Explore Setup Password field, type the password for the Explore Node 1 setup user account and then click Connect.
  9. When the Explore cluster settings are saved, click Done.
