According to the Sc 9.1 installation guide, we must run Solr as the windows service, so that the SIF can stop/start the service during the installation. The compatible Solr version is 7.2.1.
I am having an issue with the Solr service could not be stopped. I am using NSSM (Not Sucking Service Manager) to create the service. It worked perfectly for my Sc9.0 installation which is using Solr 6.6.1. However it's not working for Solr 7.2.1. The service created via NSSM can be started, however when i tried to stop it from windows services window, it gave me the following error:
Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion
The output log ended with this line: 2019-02-20 03:08:30.551: Terminate batch job (Y/N)?
There is no "official" instruction of how to run Solr 7.2.1 as a windows service from both Solr website and Sitecore website. Has anyone managed Sc 9.1 installation successfully? How did you run Solr as a windows service?
