I run Sitecore 10.2 with SXA in containers and I deleted all my SOLR data, SOLR Cloud have 0 collections and only a default configset in ZooKeeper.

The solr-init containers give the following error on start:

SolrCollectionsToDeploy exists, skipping base configset creation.

Creating 'sitecore_sxa_master_index_config' SOLR config set based on sitecore_content_config

No indexes are created. How to fix this? I'm using the sitecore-xp0-solr-init image and sitecore-sxa-xp1-assets

You get this Base ConfigSet does not exist: sitecore_content_config error when you run the start.ps1 in the solr-init container when you have set a value in the SOLR_COLLECTIONS_TO_DEPLOY parameter and have not already the Sitecore base config.

The error also says it is about creating the sitecore_sxa_master_index_config, likely you have set SOLR_COLLECTIONS_TO_DEPLOY: sxa leave the SOLR_COLLECTIONS_TO_DEPLOY parameter empty, then the Base Config Set will deploy first before creating the indexes.

Take a look at your docker-compose.yml, docker-compose.override.yml e.t.c or, in the case of Sitecore Managed Cloud See the application repo, roles/sitecore-xp/templates/searchstax-solr-init-sxa-spe.yaml and adjust or set an empty value in the SOLR_COLLECTIONS_TO_DEPLOY parameter.
