I've found a couple of threads on this topic here, but honestly it's all greek to me. I know essentially nothing about setting this stuff up, so I'm hoping someone can help me in baby steps.
Here's my issue. I just started a new job and they installed Tomcat as a part of some Digital Asset Management system called Razuna months before I got hired. Currently this installation of Tomcat is running as a console, which means the user has to remain logged in on the server for it to stay running. They want me to figure out how to make this installation run as a service without reinstalling it, so that no one needs to be logged in all the time. I haven't a clue what I need to do.
This is a virtual machine, running Windows Server, though I'm not sure what edition. Heck, I don't even know what version of Tomcat is running. Can someone start me in the right direction and maybe help get me through this nightmare?
Tomcat (at least modern versions) ships with a windows service shell (Procrun). You should look up the documentation for on Procrun/commons daemon for instructions on how to configure and run tomcat as a windows service.
