  1. Shut down Tomcat Server (if it is running) using the command:

    1. $CATALINA_HOME/bin/shutdown.sh

       

       

  2. Create a file setEnv.sh in the directory $CATALINA_HOME/bin. Add content below to the file:

     

    export JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS="$JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS -javaagent:/opt/virsec/iae-java/instrumentation.jar -DVSP_HOME=/opt/virsec -Dvirsec_appcontextpath=<AppCollectiveID>"

     

    NOTE:

    Ensure that <AppCollectiveID> mentioned above is replaced with the App Collective ID in the CMS Application Configuration section

     

  3. Start the Tomcat Server using any one of the below methods: 

    1. Method 1: Using Startup Script:

      1. $CATALINA_HOME/bin/startup.sh

         

         

    2. Method 2: Using init service:

      1. Example: systemctl start <tomcat-service-name>

      2. A sample tomcat.service script is provided below. Verify that the variable WorkingDirectory is present. If it is not, add it as depicted below:
