ERROR: Failed to create collection 'SolrCollection'


ERROR: Failed to create collection 'SolrCollection'


I m trying to create collection on hdfs using kerberos but not solr we are trying to create collection on the cloud mode in hdfs (which is on kerberos). so is this way we are able to create collection or do we need to run solr on kerberos mode too.?

Any help would be much appreciate

Thanks in advance.

when i create collection i m facing this issue..
