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.
They say you have to be the first, the best or different. I say, is it too much to ask for all three.
I haven't really play much with these windows services... But if you get that in error in tomcat6w.exe it may depict that some problems with installation. Is it possible for you to make a fresh install?
