Updating bucket search schema

Hi Gordon,

You should be able to run "search-cmd clear-schema-cache" as step 3, instead
of restarting the cluster.

This clears the schema on all connected nodes. (I stress "connected nodes"
here because if a network partition results in an unreachable--but still
running--node, then that node will continue to use the old cached version of
the schema.)
