am running a batch file to create a tomcat service...
"%CATALINA_HOME%\bin\tomcat.exe" -install VFarm "%JAVA_HOME%\jre\bin\server\jvm.dll" -Djava.class.path="%CATALINA_HOME%\common\lib;%CATALINA_HOME%\bin\bootstrap.jar;%JAVA_HOME%\lib\tools.jar" -Dcatalina.home="%CATALINA_HOME%" -djava.home="%JAVA_HOME%\jre" %CATALINA_OPTS% -Xrs -start org.apache.catalina.startup.BootstrapService -params start -config "%CATALINA_HOME%\conf\server.xml" -stop org.apache.catalina.startup.BootstrapService -params stop -out "%CATALINA_HOME%\logs\stdout.log" -err "%CATALINA_HOME%\logs\stderr.log" -current "%CATALINA_HOME%"
are the contents of the able to create a service but it does not start....when I start the service it pops up a message...
"The tomcat service on Local computer started and stopped.Some services stop automtically if they have no work to do........."
how can I make the service work...
Thanks in advance!!

there are no option named '-config' - try removing it and uninstall/install again..
-config "%CATALINA_HOME%\conf\server.xml"
You can see the valid options by typing 'tomcat /?' in a DOS box.
you could also look at this post:
or do a search in the this forum - there has been a lot of post about this topic.

Here's the command I have used....
tomcat.exe -install "%SERVICENAME%" "%JAVA_HOME%\jre\bin\server\jvm.dll" -Djava.class.path="%JAVACLASSPATH%" -Dcatalina.home="%CATALINA_HOME%" -Xrs -start org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap -params start -stop org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap -params stop -out "%CATALINA_HOME%\logs\catalina.out" -err "%CATALINA_HOME%\logs\stderr.log" -current "%CATALINA_HOME%\bin"...
Any idea as to how I can have the service started after installing the service...
Thanks in Advance!
