      Description

      While documenting legacy distributed search, for the purpose of an example, I wanted to start 2 instances on the same machine in standalone mode with a core each and the same config set.
      Here's what I did to start the 2 nodes:

      bin/solr start -s example/nodes/node1 -p 8983
      bin/solr start -s example/nodes/node2 -p 8984 
      

      So far so good. Now, create_core doesn't accept a port number and so it pseudo-randomly picks a node to create the core i.e. I can't create a core using scripts on both nodes smoothly unless we support "-p <port number>" with that call (and may be collection too?).

      FYI, I also tried :

      bin/solr start -s example/nodes/node1 -p 8983 -e techproducts
      bin/solr start -s example/nodes/node2 -p 8984 -e techproducts
      

      but this failed as -e overrides -s. I don't really remember why we did that, but perhaps we can consider not overriding -s, even when -e is specified i.e. copy whatever is required and use -s.
