    Actually Solr 7.2.1 is not supported by Sitecore 8.2. Check the Solr compatibility table: kb.sitecore.net/articles/227897 Commented Feb 15, 2018 at 8:13
  • Thanks Artesem actually i was little bit confused about the compatibility. kb.sitecore.net/articles/227897 So do we have to revert and start configuring on solr previous verision like solr-6.6.2? Thanks again Commented Feb 15, 2018 at 8:17
  • Sitecore 8.2 supports Solr 6.0 – 6.1. Solr 6.6.1 is not supported. I think the same with 6.6.2. So, download the Solr 6.1 and go through the solution 2 in the article. Commented Feb 15, 2018 at 8:22
  • I am using solr 6.6.2 with sitecore 8.2 update 6 and its working fine, so you can also try with solr 6.6.2. Commented Feb 15, 2018 at 8:25

It is always advisable to follow the compatibility table but if you still wants to use the installed version then please check below line is exist in your schema.xml or not?

<field name="_version_" type="long" indexed="true" stored="true"/>


Unsupported Solr version. Please see the compatibility table https://kb.sitecore.net/articles/227897. Sitecore relies on Solr definition field version, which is not present at your new generated schema.xml, therefore you are getting this Solr error, you can try adding this field into the schema and try again, or downgrade the Solr to the compatible listed version in the link I've provided.
