If you believe that VIVO contains data, but you can't find any, you may very well have a problem with Solr.

In progress.

Signs of a possible Solr-related problem

  • Smoke tests
    • Immediate failures
    • Separate thread, since Solr may start after VIVO
      • Go to the status page. Do you see a successful completion?
        • If not, wait (how long)?
  • No content
    • Confirm that this is a Solr problem by navigating through VIVO and finding content.
  • Others?

Is Solr working properly?

  • Check the admin console.
  • See the fields
  • See the contents?
  • Look in the Solr log

Does it help to rebuild?

  • Really clean
    • Solr home directory
    • Tomcat/webapps, Tomcat/work, Tomcat/conf
    • ant clean deploy (or ant all)

Is the communication working?

  • Check the VIVO log?
  • Check the deploy.properties (both in the log and in the file)

(Recap: look through all of the steps with Mark Ludwig)
