Eric, Just throwing whats's in my mind. I see that collection cluster state has the all the information to create the core.properties. If I create the core.properties from the cluster state and then reload the collection will that bring the collection up?
I did try the above step, but instead of reload I restarted the solr instance and collection was up and running. Do you think if would be worth putting the support in solr collection api? With Thanks & Regards Karthik
