[THREDDS #CVJ-417284]: TDS 4.6 with CentOS 7



Greetings!

We have used CentOS 7 I believe, but we never use the package manager version 
of Tomcat. That should not matter for this issue, however.

I think the key here is that the tds.content.root.path Java System Property 
isn't being passed into the JAVA_OPTS variable, and so the TDS cannot find it. 
You currently have that property stored in an environmental variable called 
CONTENT_ROOT. You could do one of two things.

1) Reference $CONTENT_ROOT when setting JAVA_OPTS:

JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS $CONTENT_ROOT -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true 
-Djava.net.preferIPv4Addresses=true"

2) Skip using the CONTENT_ROOT variable and directly add the Java System 
Property to the JAVA_OPTS variable:

JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -Dtds.content.root.path=/var/lib/tomcats/ops/content/ 
-Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true -Djava.net.preferIPv4Addresses=true"

Second, I think you will need to explicitly export the JAVA_OPTS variable so 
that the CATALINA_HOME/bin/catalina.sh has access to it. So, make sure to add

export $JAVA_OPTS

to the end of your setenv.sh file.

Overall, your setenv.sh file might look something like:

--

#!/bin/bash
CONTENT_ROOT="-Dtds.content.root.path=/var/lib/tomcats/ops/content/"
JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS $CONTENT_ROOT -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true 
-Djava.net.preferIPv4Addresses=true"
export JAVA_OPTS

--

My guess is that you'd also want to tweak the memory allocated to the JVM here 
as well buy adding the desired -Xmx option to the JAVA_OPTS variable as well.

Cheers,

Sean
