Tomcat not generating Catalina.out

Catalina.out is not being generated by Tomcat. Under tomcat\logs, I find all other logs except Catalina.out. We have Tomcat installed in an Unix box.

Any pointers to possible problems will be greatly appreciated.

How are you starting Tomcat ? Check the script you are using to see if it uses command line arguments to set the output directory.
