I am trying to configure SOLR on my machine for the first time. I am trying to index one of the tables from the sql server and keep on getting the following errors

1/16/2015, 1:29:06 PM
Exception while processing: PolicyIndex document : SolrInputDocument(fields: []):org.apache.solr.handler.dataimport.DataImportHandlerException: Unable to execute query: select ID,​Name from PolicyIndex Processing Document # 1
1/16/2015, 1:29:06 PM
Full Import failed:java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.RuntimeException: org.apache.solr.handler.dataimport.DataImportHandlerException: Unable to execute query: select ID,​Name from PolicyIndex Processing Document # 1

Inside the logs I see this error : Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException

Here is the xml from my data-config file.

  <dataSource type="JdbcDataSource"

    <entity name="PolicyIndex"  
      query="select ID,Name from PolicyIndex"
       <field column="ID" name="ID"/>
       <field column="Name" name="Name"/>      

I think i have the datasource tag wrong.

can someone please help.

Apparently you need to understand jdbc connection strings.
It is absolutely unlikely microsoft jdbc driver understands postgresql connect string.
I suggest you use jTDS right away to avoid confusion and grief.

You are running with integrated security and you didn't define any database so means that the current user need to have as default database the same database where table PolicyIndex is.
