ExternalFileField not working in Cloudera Search?

Explorer

I'm trying to use ExternalFileField field type of Solr to boost ranking based on a external file in HDFS - however, when I try to run a query based on the externalfiefield, I'm seeing the below error saying that the external file could not be loaded. The file does exist in HDFS in the required location. Is this feature supposed to work in cloudera search or I'm doing something wrong here?

 

Error opening external value source file: java.io.FileNotFoundException: hdfs:/host:8020/solr/collection1/core_node1/data/external_Rank (No such file or directory)
