Subject RE: Tomcat auf MS Cluster?
Date Wed, 06 Oct 2010 14:16:54 GMT
I agree with Mark, upgrade your Tomcat to a supported rev.
If possible, go to the latest 6.0, otherwise, 5.5.x would be good, but
it will become unsupported shortly when 7.0.x becomes official.
I currently run production 5.5.29 in your environment, but using
standalone servers, not clustered.  Therefore, I can't offer any advice
on the failover aspects. FTR: I use Java 1.6.0_20 64-bit for the JVM.
For a standalone environment, this setup runs just fine.
If you do stick with 5.0.28, you would need to get the 64-bit runtimes
to replace the 32-bit versions that no doubt come with the 5.0.28
installer.  Search the archives, I KNOW there are discussions on how to
do that successfully.  Or you can stick with the 32-bit runtimes and use
a 32-bit java, but that kinda defeats the purpose of using a 64-bit OS
doesn't it.
