    Default Can't get tomcat to start

    After moving our installation over to a test server (running Ubuntu) 6.06 LTS, I am unable to get tomcat running. Here's what I've done:

    -Dummy install using same version of zimbra (4.5.6 GA FOSS)

    -Replace /opt/zimbra with the restore

    -Some general housekeeping related to other problems I am fixing (I can go into further detail if deemed relevant, but basically export/reimport of ldap data, and some uppercase domain name fixes in config files)

    -Run the installer in upgrade mode. The installer seems to complete successfully.

    -Fixed permissions

    -Do zmcontrol start. After, I do zmcontrol status and see:
    Code:
    zimbra@phosphor:~$ zmcontrol status
    Host phosphor.leddynamics.com
            antispam                Running
            antivirus               Stopped
                    zmclamdctl is not running
            ldap                    Running
            logger                  Running
            mailbox                 Stopped
                    tomcat is not running
            mta                     Running
            snmp                    Running
            spell                   Running
    My /etc/hosts file is okay.

    Attached is my catalina.out, zmsetup.log, and install.log. Any help would be appreciated, as I've been working on this move for about a month now

    Did you check that the zimbra install on the new server has the same uid & gid as your original server?

    The zimbra user and group is 1001 on both servers... is that what you mean?

    perhaps post the output of ls -lR /opt/zimbra/apache-tomcat-5.5.15/server/webapps/

    Yes, that was what I meant. You don't, by any chance, have another mail server running on this machine do you? I can connect to your server at phosphor.leddynamics.com and get a response from a postfix server, check if you have another server running.
    Regards

    Bill,

    the severe error in the catalina log file would cause the install to bork wouldn't it ? :-

    Code:
    Jan 9, 2008 10:38:44 AM org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContext resourcesStart
    SEVERE: Error starting static Resources
    java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Document base /opt/zimbra/apache-tomcat-5.5.15/server/webapps/host-manager does not exist or is not a readable directory
    	at org.apache.naming.resources.FileDirContext.setDocBase(FileDirContext.java:140)

    Bill- you are connecting to a different (production) server. The one I am working on is a copy on a test network, you can't get to it.

    No, that's just a warning about missing directories (there's two of them).

    Stop Zimbra and make sure all of the processes are gone the start it again, what errors do you see in /var/log/zimbra.log?

    Did you also run zmfixperms after copying over your old /opt/zimbra?
