How to chkconfig (OpenKM JBOSS init script)

It needs some steps to integrate OpenKM properly. Therefore, you basically need to engineer your start script yourself. The following notes should help to get JBOSS up quickly.

1) create a new user 

  # useradd jboss
2) copy script

  # cp JBOSS_HOME/bin/ /etc/init.d/jboss
3) add chkconfig properties to init file

  # chkconfig: 345 65 35
  # description: JBOSS AS init script
  # pidfile: /var/run/
4) adjust all other variables in the init file header 
5) add script to chkconfig
  # chkconfig --add jboss
6) set jboss to be started at level 3
  # chkconfig jboss --level 3 on
7) start now (# service jboss start)

Configuring alternatives in CentOS (e.g. Oracle Java SE)

The installation of Oracle Java SE (JDK) on some Linux distribution is still a fight. Probably the most staright forward way on Cent OS is downloading and installing the most current  self-exctracting archive (.bin) and installing it to /opt.

Finally, ensure the Oracle Java SE binary ist called instead of the GNU ones.

#alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java /opt/jdk1.6.025/bin/java
#alternatives --config java

There are 2 programs which provide 'java'.

Selection Command
*+ 1 /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.4.2-gcj/bin/java
2 /opt/jdk1.6.025/bin/java


Enter to keep the current selection[+], or type selection number: 2

Backup VE in OpenVZ on CentOS

Unfortunately, the CentOS 5.5 final release and repositories do not support vzdump out of the box. However, some research and hints in other blogs finally led me to a running solutions.


rpm -i cstream-2.7.4-3.el4.rf.x8664.rpm
rpm -i perl-LockFile-Simple-0.206-1.el5.rf.noarch.rpm
rpm -i vzdump-1.2-4.noarch.rpm


export PERL5LIB=/usr/share/perl5/

That’s it.

vzdump --suspend --compress --all --mailto
