: @solr-dev: Could sbd. from upstream help us out with a working tomcat.policy 
: for solr? For now I just granted all permissions to solr.

I'm not very familiar with tomcat security policy declarations, but in 

 * solr needs read/write to whatever is configured to be the data dir(s)

 * if you want support for persistant core admin changes, then solr needs 
read/write to the solr home dir, and the solr.xml file in that directory.

 * solr needs read for the conf directory.

 * if you want config file replication, then solr needs write access to 
the conf directory (on slave machine)

...if it were me: i'd just use a full read/write policy for some top 
level "solr" directory, and then keep everything in there, but it depends 
on how "generic" you are devising the packages.
