What was the configname in use for sial-catalog-product when it was
backed up?  Chances are that it was/is sial-catalog-product, the same
name as the collection itself.  I have just confirmed that this is what
happens when I use the "bin/solr create" command and it uploads a
configuration to zookeeper- the configuration gets the same name as the

If the collection was restored to the same cloud where it was backed up
from, then there would not have been a configuration upload, because the
named configuration would already be present.  If it were restored to a
different cloud, then it might have uploaded the configuration, but only
if that config name was not already present.

It sounds like the BACKUP and RESTORE operations work just as I had
expected them to work, not how you expected.
