Overnight the replicas with a state of "down" changed to "recovery_failed". Nothing I did. So I brought down both nodes, then started one and waited 5 min. A leader was born then I started the other node. So luckily no heroics were needed.
I'll remember your advice about creating a parallel collection and copying the data directory. -- Sent from: https://lucene.472066.n3.nabble.com/Solr-User-f472068.html
