Subject tomcat won't start via remote ssh command
Date Thu, 13 Jan 2011 02:35:27 GMT
Hi Guys,

I created a simple (i thought) script to restart a tomcat server when our 
alerting system sees the site as down (almost always a memory issue that a 
reboot of the tomcat server fixes). 

The script runs and works fine when executed as the user on the local 
server. When run via ssh, it will shut down the tomcat server, and appear 
to start it -- but does not. I'm not a tomcat expert at all and I haven't 
been able to figure out how to get more information. I'm guessing that 
there is some environment information that is missing over the ssh terminal 
that is causing it not to start, but I don't have any hints and the output 
is the same as when it works. 

The SSH command I run that doesn't work is below. Since even this command 
does not work, I won't bother complicating the issue with the details of my 

$ ssh -t -p 222 
Using JRE_HOME:       /usr
Connection to closed.

Any help would be very much appreciated if you have experience with this.
