Setting up a headless environment with Tomcat to display flashboards
If you use a terminal to reach a headless UNIX system where you have installed the web server and mid tier, you might receive error messages when accessing flashboards through a browser.
To make sure that flashboards work from a headless UNIX environment, you must set Java VM options on the servlet engine that controls BMC Remedy Mid Tier.
To set Java VM options on the servlet engine
- In the catalina.sh file, add the following options for JAVA_OPTS near the top of the file:
- -Dsun.java2d.fontpath= sdkInstallDirectory/jre/lib/fonts
- Restart Tomcat for this change to take effect.
Use a similar procedure to add VM options to other servlet engines. See your respective server vendor's documentation for information about configuring Java options.
