We are trying to integrate Alfresco Community 201707 with Solr 6 distribution, alfresco-search-services-1.1.0. Please find the steps tried so far.

Server 1 - Alfresco & Solr 6 in same server (Working)

  1. Installed Alfresco Community with Solr 4.
  2. Download Alfresco Solr 6 distribution, unpack and copy the Solr 6 folder to ALFRESCO_HOME.
  3. Run the below command ALFRESCO_HOME/solr6/solr/bin/solr start -a "-Dcreate.alfresco.defaults=alfresco,archive"
  4. Then open the url  "http://localhost:8983/solr" I can able to see the  both Alfresco and Archive are in the dropdown in solr admin page.
  5. After that editing the file (ALFRESCO_HOME/tomcat/shared/classes/ with below configuration.

    ### Solr indexing ###






  6. Disable the Solr
 4 subsystem following the below steps:
    1. Disable Solr 4 tracking in the ALFRESCO_HOME/solr4/workspace-SpacesStore/conf/ file. enable.alfresco.tracking=false
    2. To remove the Solr 4 web application and indexes, stop the Tomcat server which is running Solr 4.
    3. Remove the <ALFRESCO_HOME>/tomcat/webapps/solr4 directory and the <ALFRESCO_HOME>/tomcat/webapps/solr4.war file
    4. Remove the <ALFRESCO_HOME>/tomcat/conf/Catalina/localhost/solr4.xml file.
  7. Then I can able to search the content in alfresco site. Note: If both the alfresco and solr are in same server means I can able to search the records.

Alfresco in Server 1 & Solr 6 in Server 2 (Error)

  • Repeated the above steps from 2 to 5 in server 2 for solr installation.
  • Modified 2 ip from the above 5th step.
  • Now If I search some content in alfresco site. search record displays nothing.


Please help us how to configure if alfresco and solr are in different server.
