Subject Re: Looking for help in building a configuration that should be simple

What have you tried? Have you worked with the Collections API?

See: https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/solr/Collections+API,
and note that in th eupper left you can download older versions of the
ref guide, including 4.10.

I'd really advise against getting hung up on this bit of your question
"I want 1AO to be the owner of that shard with 2AB as the backup, and 2BO to
be the owner of its data and have 1BB as its backup."

First off, the default behavior is to distribute shards and replicas
across the nodes available in a balanced fashion. Then one of the
points of SolrCloud is that you shouldn't have to worry about who is
or is not the leader, and it'll shift around anyway as you bring nodes
up/down in different sequences. "Leader" is a lightweight role,
especially in a 2x2 setup and completely not worth obsessing over. You
can't really assign specific shards to specific nodes in 4.10, but you
can in the 5.1 with the createNodeSet.shuffle parameter, create a
one-replica (i.e. leader-only) collection then use ADDREPLICA to add
the replicas for the shards exactly where you want. . But again, IMO
it's a waste of time.

Up to you of course,
Erick
