Could not load solr.xml from zookeeper: node not found

Explorer

Newly installed cluster which began with CDH 5.5 and was recently upgraded to CDH 5.7.

 

Errors encountered during startup of cluster service are identical for both versions.

 

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions on how to proceed. Thanks!

Re: Could not load solr.xml from zookeeper: node not found

Super Collaborator

It looks like zookeeper didn't get initialized, can you shut down the solr service and run the "Initialize Solr" action from the solr service page?

If that doesn't work, then try the following from the command line:

solrctl init --force


(Note: this is a descructive command which will remove all solr configurations in zk and reinitialize. Do not use if it you have solr configuration you need to keep)

Hello pdvorak
Initialize from service page did not work - message = "Skipping because Solr service is already initialized."

I executed "solrctl init --force" as you suggested and service started OK for the first time. :)

I am now seeing a different issue in solr log, but service remains up and running. I will file case for following issue, but this issue can be considered resolved. Thanks!

2016-05-25 10:56:31,870 INFO org.apache.solr.servlet.SolrDispatchFilter: [admin] webapp=null path=/admin/cores params={action=STATUS&wt=json} status=0 QTime=0

Re: Could not load solr.xml from zookeeper: node not found

Super Collaborator

There is a regression that was introduced in CDH5.7.0 that throws that stack trace (at INFO level) for every update, or /admin/cores command.

The workaround is to set the following in the logging safety valve for the solr service:

 

log4j.logger.org.apache.solr.servlet.SolrDispatchFilter=WARN

This will be resolved in CDH5.7.1.

Hi @pdvorak,

 

from today, I'm having the same error, but I can't execute the command: solrctl init --force in Prod enviroment, is there any other solution in order to fix this issue?

Many thanks in advance for the kind cooperation.

Re: Could not load solr.xml from zookeeper: node not found

This seems to be indicating that the jute.maxbuffer has been exceeded.

You can increase this on the command line side by exporting the following:
export ZKCLI_JVM_FLAGS=-Djute.maxbuffer=4194304

You may need to confirm on the ZK service configuration, if the jute.maxbuffer size is also 4 MB
