Hello ASpace Users;

We just upgraded from ArchivesSpace version 2.7.1 to version 3.2.0 and now have 
"phantom" records in Resources and Subjects. By phantom I mean records show up 
in ASpace, but are not in the database and when trying to view the record 


As part of this upgrade on our Test machine  we:

  *   Started using External Solr as opposed to Internal
  *   Purged the contents of the following directories, but did not delete the 
     *   /apps/archivesspace/data/indexer_pui_state
     *   /apps/archivesspace/data/indexer_state
     *   /apps/archivesspace/data/tmp
  *   Kept, but moved /apps/archivesspace/data/solr_backups  to  
/apps/archivesspace/data/old_solr_backups; and created a new 
/apps/archivesspace/data/solr_backups  directory
  *   Refreshed our Test MySQL database from our v2.7.1 Prod version and ran 
the setup-database.sh script to convert to v3.2.0. We are running MySQL version 

This left the following directory structure under the data directory:

External Solr was installed on the same Linux server as ArchivesSpace. We 
installed solr-8.10.0, but see that a newer version solr-8.11.2 is available. 
Should we be using the newer version? How can we clear the External Solr index 
in order to rebuild it?

What needs to be done to eliminate these phantom records? We are assuming it is 
something left over from the prior version.

Please advise or let us know if you need more information.

Thank you.
