When running SolrCloud, don't try to manually add cores, mess with the file, or use the CoreAdmin API unless you understand 
****EXACTLY**** how SolrCloud works internally.  And even if you do have

easy to get wrong.  Use the Collections API to make changes to your 
indexes.  Virtually any action that people need to do to their indexes 
is supported by the Collections API, and if there's something important 
missing, then we can talk about adding it.  If the Collections API is 
bypassed, there's a good chance that something will be missing/incorrect 
in either zookeeper or, maybe both.
