By 1 replica, I mean a single copy of the shard with no redundancy.

We haven't encountered any problems with the testing environment solr
instances, that weren't expected. At least that I'm aware of.

I do have the logs saved from the time frame the issue occurred in if those
would be useful. We're running Solr 6.3.0 on Ubuntu 16.04 virtual machines.
