Problem Description: The <cfcollection> tag is not removing the physical folder structure for a collection after using the "delete" action. It reports that the collection was removed, however the folder structure still remains which results in a "Collection already exists" error when attempting to recreate it. The system itself reports the file as in use by coldfusion when attempting to delete it manually. The cfusion user has full access to the solr home directory as well. 

Steps to Reproduce:

<cfcollection action="create"  collection="test123"/>
<cfcollection action="delete"  collection="test123"/>

Any Workarounds: 

Stopping ColdFusion and deleting the collection manually from the solr home directory.



If you only want to re-build a collection then do not Delete and Create, but use <cfindex action="purge"...> and the use <cfindex....> to Rebuild the collection.
