Hi All,

I have tomcat installed as a service on a Windows 2008 server. The service is running fine. But when I try to use Configure Tomcat, I get the following error.

The specified service does not exist as an installed service.
unable to open the service 'tomcat6'

The main issue is that I have to specify the heap size for tomcat. But, since it is a service, I do not have a catalina.bat file. I have tried googling it and in most places they suggest using Configure Tomcat.
I cannot use the zipped version of tomcat as this is being used to run a BMC Remedy application. And it is in the production environement. So ; I cannot mess with it without knowing something definite.

I have also tried JAVA_OPTS and CATALINA_OPTS enviroment variables. But, I cannot check if they are actually used for running tomcat.

Any inputs are welcome. Thanks in advance.
