When creating collections (I'm using the bin/solr scripts), I think we should automatically copy configsets, especially when running in "getting started mode" or data driven mode.
I did the following:
I then created a second collection with the intention of sending in the same data, but this time run through a python script that changed a value from an int to a string (since it was an enumerated type) and was surprised to see that I got:
Caused by: java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: "NA"
for my new version of the data that passes in a string instead of an int, as this new collection had only seen strings for that field.
