I'm not sure why the user wouldn't have been created, but I know you're dealing with an offline cluster so maybe something else in the parcel installation didn't work as expected.  The error seems pretty clear, though, you need the "solr" user on your systems.  Have you tried manually creating that user and seeing if that helps?

The error message in manager GUI says to check the logs in

mydomain:9000/process/303-solr-SOLR_SERVER/files/logs/stderr.log.How ever when there is no such file present in file system.I do not even see the directory 303-solr-SOLR_SERVER.
