Both bash 4 and SLES 11 are more than nine years old.  Upgrades are
definitely recommended.

The option that might be fastest is the second one you've presented --
changing anything in the scripts that requires bash 4 so it's compatible
with bash 3.  If you're comfortable with modifying a shell script in
this way, this is a good option.

The first option is probably a little bit safer -- install bash 4, and
make sure that this is the version used when installing and when
starting Solr.  That could be a PATH adjustment, or changing the shebang
in each script.

There is another issue you're going to need to deal with on SLES.  A fix
for this issue has not been committed to the source repository:
