Jan 28, 2013
Tomcat is used as the application server by XenMobile Device Manager. To view the Tomcat instances handled by Multi-Tenant Console, click Tomcat Servers in Multi-Tenant Console.

The following information appears for each Tomcat server instance definition:

  • Service Status. The colored bullet has the following meaning:
    • Green. Working server.
    • Red. Stopped or Paused server. Error while requesting status.
    • White. Unknown.
    • Orange. Starting or Stopping.
  • Name. The given name of that Tomcat server.
  • Full Version. Release number of this tomcat instance.
  • HTTP Connector. HTTP Connector linked to the server.
  • Tenant Host. Tenant host on which the Tomcat server is deployed.
  • Tenants. Tenants that are using the Tomcat server.

  2. Complete the following fields:
    • Name. Enter a name for the Tomcat server.
    • Full Version. Enter the release number of the installed Tomcat. The default is 6.0.16.
    • Directory paths. Enter the full local path to the Tomcat directories.
