I've successfully installed CmapServer v6.04.01 on Suse Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 12.
I managed to create a systemd service unit file to have it run as a service, and am sharing the instructions below, in case it helps anyone else. It required some trial and error because the advice out there for starting a Tomcat server (on which CmapServer runs) says to use Type=forking, which does not work correctly. (The correct Type=simple). And to stop the server, a delay is necessary (which I've set to 180 seconds, 90 seconds was too short) to allow the necessary time to shutdown gracefully.
To have it run as a service (using systemd), I have created the following service unit file and placed it in /etc/systemd/system/CmapServer.service
Code: Select all
[Unit] Description=CmapServer Apache Tomcat Web Application Container After=syslog.target network.target [Service] Type=simple TimeoutStopSec=180 SuccessExitStatus=143 ExecStart=/srv/CmapServer/bin/CmapServer ExecStop=/bin/kill -15 $MAINPID [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
systemctl start CmapServer.service
And to have it start automatically when the server starts:
systemctl enable CmapServer.service
