Subject Re: Solr 5.3.1 CREATE defaults to schema-less mode Java version 1.7.0_45

I'm pretty confused about what you're trying to do. You mention using
the SolrCloud UI to look at your core, but on the other hand you also
mention using the core admin to create the core.

Trying to use the core admin commands with SolrCloud is a recipe for
disaster. Under the covers, the _collections_ api does, indeed, use
the core admin API to create cores, but it really must be precisely
done. If you're going to try to create your own cores, I recommend
setting up a non-SolrCloud system.

If you want to use SolrCloud, then I _strongly_ recommend you use the
collections API to create your collections. You can certainly have a
single-shard collection that would be a leader-only collection (i.e.
no followers), which would have only a single core cluster-wide if
that fits your architecture....

As it is, in cloud mode Solr expects the configs to be up on
Zookeeper, not resident on disk somewhere. And the admin core create
command promises that you have the configs in
/Users/nw/Downloads/twc-session-dash/collection1 which is a recipe for
confusion on Solr's part...
