Frequently Asked Questions - SearchStax

The SearchStax® Frequently Asked Questions page includes the following approved question and answer about our Apache Solr Cloud services.

How can I copy the Solr /data directory?

A client asked how to copy the Solr /data directory from one deployment to another.

SearchStax has no feature that directly copies a Solr /data directory. The team recommended using the Solr Export Handler. Then add the exported documents to the target deployment using the Solr Update API.

Note that there are some caveats in using the Export Handler. For instance, any fields that are not "stored" in Solr will not be exported from this handler.

We love to answer questions!

Please contact the SearchStax Support Desk immediately if you have any question about Solr Cloud deployments.
