8.13 Tomcat

The following general Tomcat information can be useful in your troubleshooting efforts.

8.13.1 Starting and Stopping Tomcat

The following tables describe how to start and stop Tomcat on the platforms supported by iManager

Table 8-1 Stopping and Starting Tomcat


Restart Command


  • init.d process: Enter /etc/init.d/novell-tomcat8 stop, then enter /etc/init.d/novell-tomcat8 start.

  • systemd process:Enter systemctl stop novell-tomcat8-service.service, then enter systemctl start novell-tomcat8-service.service.

iManager Workstation

Shut down and restart iManager Workstation.


Stop and start the Tomcat service.

8.13.2 Tomcat Ports

If you experience port conflicts while upgrading to iManager, or need to know the ports that Tomcat is using, consult the platform-specific information in this section.


View Tomcat ports in the /var/opt/novell/tomcat8/conf/server.xml file.

The non-SSL port section of the file begins with Define a non-SSL Coyote HTTP/1.1 Connector on port n, while the SSL port section begins with Define an SSL Coyote HTTP/1.1 Connector on port n.


Windows allows for relocation of all files. If you accept the defaults in the iManager installation, look for Tomcat configuration files in the rootdir\novell\tomcat8\conf\server.xml file.

If you can't find a configuration file, search the Windows registry for the Tomcat settings.
