Management Console deployed in Tomcat doesn't start after Java Update

Article # 3038540 - Page views: 58


After Java is updated, Management Console deployed in Tomcat doesn't start.

When the Tomcat Windows service is started an error is displayed:


In Event Viewer you can find an Error with event ID 7024 from Service Control Manager:
"The <Service_Name> service terminated with service-specific error Incorrect function"

The better message can be found in Tomcat's common_daemon log:

[info] [ 304] Starting service...
[error] [  304] Failed creating Java <java path>\bin\server\jvm.dll
[error] [  304] The system cannot find the path specified.
[error] [  304] ServiceStart returned 1



The path to jvm.dll is no longer valid. Tomcat most probably points to the old Java path, before the upgrade.



When Tomcat is installed as a windows service follow the steps below to resolve:

  1. From Start > Programs open Configure Tomcat application (from the Tomcat program group)
  2. Go to the Java tab
  3. Under "Java Virtual Machine" click the "..." button, browse to the new location of jvm.dll (under the new java version location) and select it.
  4. Click OK to save
  5. Start the Tomcat service

If Tomcat is running in command mode the JAVA_HOME or JRE_HOME environment variable needs to be pointed to the new Java location before Tomcat is restarted.
