Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-9575) Initialize an empty solr-home
Date Thu, 02 Feb 2017 10:31:51 GMT


Jan Høydahl commented on SOLR-9575:

Discovered that Solr's own {{}} script forgets to copy {{zoo.cfg}}
into {{/var/solr/data/}}, causing an error when creating a collection in embedde-zk mode.

It may not be very common to use the installer to install a single-node with embedded ZK,
but it's a bug, so I filed SOLR-10088.

For this special case I think that Solr could have safely initialized the zoo.cfg file, since
we're in embedded ZK mode, and solr.xml already exists...

> The user may not want to use Solr's default solr-home dir location -- most likely to
use a separate disk.  If you do this, there are two main problems:
> * solr.xml & zoo.cfg aren't there
> * configsets aren't there
> Of course you could copy it manually but that's an extra step, and it's particularly
annoying to add this step to a Docker setup.  Docker is all the rage these days, and for good
reason.  If I mount a volume at /opt/solr/server/solr then it basically masks this part of
the built-in Solr image (thus making configsets completely invisible) and points to some place
that will be empty.  Solr obviously complains.  I could set the solr-home to some other path
that I mount, but Solr would still complain about an empty solr-home -- no solr.xml
> If solr-home is empty, and if it's a dir other than the default solr-home, then I think
the solr-home should be initialized with solr.xml and zoo.cfg copied from the default solr-home.
 I think configsets should be referenced from the default solr-home if there is no configsets
dir in solr-home.
