    Code Block

    Code Block
    mvn clean install sakai:deploy -Dmaven.tomcat.home=<SAKAI_INSTALLATION_DIR> -Dmaven.test.skip

This instance has a index persisted on the file system. In order to make the tool work in a clustered deployment, the data directory of Solr needs to be available to all the cluster instances. This directory can be configured by setting the following value in
