In most cases you will want to run JBoss as a non-privileged user. For this example we will set up a jboss user (adding the user is an excersize for the user). This example covers jboss-6.1.0-Final.
- Add $JAVA_HOME and $JBOSS_HOME environmental vars to .bash_profile for your jboss user. $JAVA_HOME points to your install of the JDK and $JBOSS_HOME points to your jboss installation directory.
- Once you have done the basic JBoss installation set up, copy the jboss_init_redhat.sh to /etc/init.d/jboss.
- Add the following directly below the #!/bin/bash line:
# description: JBoss Start Stop Restart
# processname: jboss
# chkconfig: 234 20 80
- Set JBOSS_HOME
- JAVAPTH to the location of your JDK
- Set JBOSS_CONF to the profile you want to run
- define a $JBOSS_HOST variable and set it to either the IP address or host name of the machine on which you are running jboss.
- Update the JBOSSCP to include the jbossall-client.jar
- Replace the JBOSS_CMD_STOP with the following line (the uid:password combo is whatever you used to lock down the admin console in jboss):
JBOSS_CMD_STOP=”$JBOSS_HOME/bin/shutdown.sh -s service:jmx:rmi:///jndi/rmi://192.168.126.128:1090/jmxrmi -u admin -p password”
- Enable jboss as a service in the OS:
- Make the jboss script executable:
- # chmod 755 jboss
Add it as a service via chkconfig:
- # chkconfig –add jboss
Set the run levels for the jboss service
- # chkconfig –level 2345 jboss on
