Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-7642) Should launching Solr in cloud mode using a ZooKeeper chroot create the chroot znode if it doesn't exist?
Date Fri, 07 Aug 2015 08:06:46 GMT


Jan Høydahl commented on SOLR-7642:

bq. What I don't like about it is that things like typos in connection strings just create
new zk nodes and start a fresh zk state tree

So how about we auto-create the chroot only if it == {{/solr}}. That will probably be the
case for 90%, and there should be no reason to believe the chroot was chosen on accident.
Then we could recommend always using a chroot of {{/solr}}, and document that for advanced
cases, e.g. reusing the same ZK ensemble for multiple Solr clusters, you need to create other
chroots manually...

A chroot was specified in ZkHost but the znode doesn't exist. localhost:2181/lan

> The work-around for this is to use the scripts/cloud-scripts/ script to create
the chroot znode (bootstrap action does this).
> I'm wondering if we shouldn't just create the znode if it doesn't exist? Or is that some
violation of using a chroot?
