Subject Re: Solr not creating core.properties file
Date Wed, 08 Jan 2014 20:00:07 GMT
One quick clarification:

"On our dev machine, this works as expected, it's just on the two other
machines where we're having QA take a crack at it that it's not working."

So:
a) On the dev machine the core admin command is working.
b) On the other two machines it's not working.

On the two machines that it's not working, is it failing with the BitNami
GUI and core admin command or just the BitNami GUI.

Because if it's failing only with the BitNami GUI then we need to know what
command the BitNami GUI is using.

Does the log file capture the command being using by BitNami?
