            setup = setupIfElectedMaster(clusterState; templates; clusterStateChange);
        } else if (setupIfNotElectedMaster(clusterState; templates.keySet()) == false) {
            // the first pass will be false so that we don't bother users if the master took one-go to setup
            if (waitedForSetup.getAndSet(true)) {
                logger.info("waiting for elected master node [{}] to setup local exporter [{}] (does it have x-pack installed?)";
                            clusterService.state().nodes().getMasterNode(); config.name());
