Your bottom line point is that EmbeddedSolrServer is different, and some configurations will
not work on it where they would work on a SolrCloud.   This is well taken.   Maybe creating
a new collection on existing dev nodes could be done.

As far as VDI and Puppet.   My requirements are different because my organization is different.
  I would prefer not to go into how different.   I have written puppet modules for other system
configurations, tested them on AWS EC2, and yet those modules have not been adopted by my

Sounds almost like you're reinventing the wheel.  Could you possibly automate this through
puppet or Chef?  With a VDI environment, then all you would need to do is build a new VM Node
based on original setup.  Then you can just roll out the node as one of the zk nodes.

Just a thought on that subject.

Subject: Testing Solr configuration, schema, and other fields

At my organization, I want to create a tool that allows users to keep a solr configuration
as a Git repository.   Then, I want my Continuous Integration environment to take some branch
of the git repository and "publish" it into ZooKeeper/SolrCloud.

Working on my own, it is only a very small pain to note foolish errors I've made, fix them,
and restart.    However, I want my users to be able to edit their own Solr schema and config
*most* of the time, at least on development servers.    They will not have command-line access
to these servers, and I want to avoid endless restarts.

I'm not interested in fighting to maintain such a useless thing as a DTD/XSD without community
support; what I really want to know is whether Solr will start and can index some sample documents.
  I'm wondering whether I might be able to build a tool to fire up an EmbeddedSolrServer and
capture error messages/exceptions in a reasonable way.     This tool could then be run by
my users before they commit to git, and then again by the CI server before it "publishes"
the configuration to ZooKeeper/SolrCloud.

Any suggestions?
