Today I experienced an error while installing Sitecore 9 using the Sitecore installation framework:
“Install-SitecoreConfiguration : Error CREATEing SolrCore ‘xp0_xdb’: Unable to create core [xp0_xdb] Caused by: null”
Setting the verbose logging option didn’t help and my tries to manually reproduce the issue didn’t work out as well; Or the core was successfully created or I got an error message that the core was already created.
I would like to reference to an old post that appeared in 2007 on http://blogs.msdn.com/sharepoint, that mentions the SharePoint debugger feature. I use it quite a lot and i am sure a lot of people don’t know about its existance. Its a relatively simple feature that shows up in the SiteActions menu, opens a page which tries to launch the debugger. Using this feature, you don’t need to run iisapp, find the right PID and attach that process to your debugger. Make sure to edit the web.config to allow debugging.
