If you attached a screenshot, it was lost.  The mailing list does not 
allow most attachments through.

It's not in solrconfig.xml.  I think you'll find the hash ranges for 
your shards in the '/collections/NAME/state.json' file for the 
collection, in zookeeper.  I'm not 100% sure that this is the correct 
location, but I *think* it is.

IndexUpgrader is a Lucene tool.  The schema is a Solr invention.  
IndexUpgrader does not know anything about the schema.  It only knows 
about what's actually in the index.

If you try to use a different schema to access your index than the 
schema it was created with, you run the risk that you won't be able to 
access your data.  Most schema changes require rebuilding the index from 
scratch.  Adding docValues is a change that requires this.  Running 
indexUpgrader is *NOT* a reindex.

Are you getting any errors when you query the index?  Look in solr.log.
