I have never seen a URL path like "/search/index/my_idx-H" for Solr. 
Typically any URL path for Solr will start with "/solr".  With a 4.x
version, you might have changed the context path in the container, in
newer versions the admin UI will break if that is changed.  If you are
attempting to use the Schema API, then your URL path would contain
"/schema" somewhere, which is missing.

Can you point to a location in the Solr documentation that describes
what you are trying to do?

I have never seen anything like the JSON that you are sending.  The
Schema API documentation for version 6.6 (not yet released) doesn't
mention any ability to change the name.  Such a change would cause no
difference in how the schema works even if it were possible -- it's
cosmetic, and something somebody who uses Solr will never see.
