Subject Re: error with multicore CREATE action
Date Mon, 23 Nov 2009 18:19:11 GMT
Are there any use cases for CREATE where the instance directory
*doesn't* yet exist? I ask because I've noticed that Solr will create
an instance directory for me sometimes with the CREATE command. In
particular, if I run something like


then Solr will create




for me (but not d:\dir_that_does_not_exist\conf).

Maybe this has to do with some particularly in my solrconfig.xml?
(There I've commented out the dataDir element because I prefer the
default behavior to what you get with "${}".)
