Solr config with zookeeper giving an error when creating collection.

Guru

I have setup solr in cloud mode with three different zookeeper servers and running all three solr instance on three different servers. I have setup solr to save index data on hdfs only. After starting all three instances I want to create a simple collection with two replica and two shards.

But I am getting following error during collection creation. It seems that somewhere solr.hdfs.home

is having wrong value for hdfs location. I have tried to check location for this properties but could not get.

Command to start Solr in Cloud mode on all three servers:

[solr@m1 solr]$ bin/solr start -c -z m1.hdp22:2181,m2.hdp22:2181,w1.hdp22:2181 -Dsolr.directoryFactory=HdfsDirectoryFactory -Dsolr.lock.type=hdfs -Dsolr.hdfs.home=hdfs://HDPTSTHA/user/solr

Started Solr server on port 8983 (pid=1495). Happy searching!

[solr@m1 solr]$ bin/solr status

Found 1 Solr nodes:

Re: Solr config with zookeeper giving an error when creating collection.

You have HDFS defined in two places: in the command line and also in the solrconfig.xml. I don't understand the one in the command line since it does not include a port and that does not look like a hostname, but it could be: HDPTSTHA. You might try temporarily changing the one in in your solrconfig.xml to something bogus to see if it affects your reported error.

Also, the create command says, "Re-using existing configuration directory labs", which makes me wonder if it is reusing what's already in zookeeper and perhaps that file does not match the one on your OS FS. The error reported has only one slash after "hdfs:/". Use Solr's zkcli.sh tool (which is different from the one that comes with Zookeeper) to get the contents of what's there or you could do a getfile or upconfig (to replace/update zookeeper). Remember that Solr adds "/solr" to the root except in embedded ZK mode.

Thanks a lot @james.jones, I tried to download config before I push with new. But I am getting below error. SO can you please help me how can I download it.

Re: Solr config with zookeeper giving an error when creating collection.

@james.jones: Can you also please let me know how to upload my new solrconfig.xml to all zookeepr ?

Re: Solr config with zookeeper giving an error when creating collection.

@Saurabh Kumar You need to add "/solr" to the end of your zookeeper host:port like this (you probably only need to list one of the zookeepers for the command)

./zkcli.sh -cmd upconfig -confdir /opt/lucidworks-hdpsearch/solr/server/solr/configsets/data_driven_schema_configs_hdfs/conf -confname labs -z m1.hdp22:2181/solr

That command will upload the conf directory. I'd also suggest trying the list command ("-cmd list") to see what's in zookeeper. It has been a ehwhile since I have used it and I can't try it at the moment.

Re: Solr config with zookeeper giving an error when creating collection.

I may have been wrong about adding "/solr" to your zookeepers. I know I had to do that somewhere, but I guess it was when starting solr from the commandline without the "bin/solr start" command.

So, you can re-upload your config directory to a configset named "lab". It will create or overwrite the current configset (which is just a ZK directory of your conf directory). The default configset name is the same as your collection. T

./zkcli.sh -zkhost localhost:2181 -cmd upconfig -confdir /opt/lucidworks-hdpsearch/solr/server/solr/configsets/data_driven_schema_configs_hdfs/conf -confname lab

If your configset is called testcoll, then do this to show the contents of the solrconfig.xml in zookeeper:

./zkcli.sh -zkhost localhost:2181 -cmd get /configs/lab/solrconfig.xml

I recommend running the list command which will dump everything in zookeeper, not just listing files but will print the contents of the files. That's a bit too much, so just pipe it to "less" and then search for your collection name as you would with vi (with / and ? to search). Then you'll see the path to your configs.

./zkcli.sh -zkhost localhost:2181 -cmd list |less

you will see something like this (my collection is called testcoll in this example):

   /configs/testcoll/solrconfig.xml (0)
   DATA: ...supressed...
   /configs/testcoll/lang (38)
    /configs/testcoll/lang/contractions_ga.txt (0)
    DATA: ...supressed...
    /configs/testcoll/lang/stopwords_hi.txt (0)
    DATA: ...supressed...
    /configs/testcoll/lang/stopwords_eu.txt (0)
    DATA: ...supressed...
    /configs/testcoll/lang/stopwords_sv.txt (0)
    DATA: ...supressed...
    /configs/testcoll/lang/contractions_it.txt (0)

I hope that helps.

@james.jones Thanks a lot. It helped me a lot. I have successfully pushed current config to zookeeper.
