Subject [jira] [Created] (SOLR-8093) `bin/solr create_core` syntax doesn't match documentation for '-d' option
Date Thu, 24 Sep 2015 18:41:04 GMT
Mike Mallett created SOLR-8093:

             Summary: `bin/solr create_core` syntax doesn't match documentation for '-d' option
                 Key: SOLR-8093
             Project: Solr
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 5.3
            Reporter: Mike Mallett

I'm attempting to create a new Solr Core using an existing set of config files. Specifically
these are being taken from the Drupal module search_api_solr-7.x-1.9 in this tarball:

The config dir located in the tarball is: search_api_solr/solr-conf/5.x/

This works fine, as I was able to copy this config directory in the shell then use the Solr
Admin UI to create the core. No errors were reported in that methodology.

However, I'm reading the help documentation included by executing the command `bin/solr create_core
-help` which states:

"-d <confdir>  Configuration directory to copy when creating the new core, built-in
options are:
      basic_configs: Minimal Solr configuration
      data_driven_schema_configs: Managed schema with field-guessing support enabled
      sample_techproducts_configs: Example configuration with many optional features enabled
to demonstrate the full power of Solr

      If not specified, default is: data_driven_schema_configs

      Alternatively, you can pass the path to your own configuration directory instead of
using one of the built-in configurations, such as: bin/solr create_core -c mycore -d /tmp/myconfig"

So I tried the following command:

bin/solr create_core -c testcore -d /opt/drupal/search_api_solr-7.x-1.9/solr-conf/5.x

This resulted in:

ERROR: Error CREATEing SolrCore 'testcore': Unable to create core [testcore] Caused by: /var/solr5/data/testcore/data

I was instructed on IRC that I am using the command incorrectly and that valid options for
'-d' are only "basic_configs", "data_driven_schema_configs",  or "sample_techproducts_configs"

I am unable to create a core from the command line, and I don't know what the process should
look like.
