We are building a two server secure cluster.
 
To get here:
[1] Setup first server as secure and configured for SAML and successfully tested
[2] Tested single server and worked fine
[3]Configured ZooKeeper and StateManagement on both servers
[4]Opened firewall ports
[5]Tried deleting authorizers and users but server will not start and says unable to locate node to seed policies.

# Identity Mapping Properties #
# These properties allow normalizing user identities such that identities coming from different identity providers
# (certificates, LDAP, Kerberos) can be treated the same internally in NiFi. The following example demonstrates normalizing
# DNs from certificates and principals from Kerberos into a common identity string:
#
# nifi.security.identity.mapping.pattern.dn=^CN=(.*?), OU=(.*?), O=(.*?), L=(.*?), ST=(.*?), C=(.*?)$

# Group Mapping Properties #
# These properties allow normalizing group names coming from external sources like LDAP. The following example
# lowercases any group name.
