All of the .jar files in /usr/share/java/tomcat/ exsits and have read and write access by root. 

Looking at the file type it does say "link (broken) (inode/symlink)

 

Any help would be appreciated. 

 

Thank you

Re: Unable to start novell-tomcat

Do you get a catalina.out at all?  Or does is it die before that point?

Are the ports it opens, blocked?  I.e. Can the machine itself reach itself? Specifically on 9005?

Re: Unable to start novell-tomcat

It seems to die before that point catalina.out is blank. 

I am seeing "Could not contact localhost:9005. Tomcat may not be running."

Where  or how could I test if the machine can reach itself over port 9005?

 

Thank you

Re: Unable to start novell-tomcat

The novell tomcat instance would be for iManager, possibly other products.
Any changes? I am guessing a permissions issue. Are you starting the
service as root or sudo? The files seem to be there based on the output,
but looks like there isn't sufficient rights. The services are installed as
root and should be started as root. I would try killing the process if it
won't stop on it's own and then try starting it as root if you were doing
it as a different user.
