How are you doing.
I am installing Appian Environment on my Local Machine, all the servers have started properly (Data Server, Search Server and Service Manager). Except for the Tomcat server, it is not giving any results at all. Not showing any errors and not showing any success results. I checked the Logs but to be honest, I could not understand anything from the logs......I will truly appreciate if any of you guys can help resolve this issue please It will be a huge favor. I attached screen shot of the command prompt for the tomcat server which is not responding at all. Please kindly, have a look at them and advice.
Thank in Advance
Hi Mohamed , that window is normal on windows local machine , it will stay there unless you don't shutdown tomcat. All the output is sent to tomcat-stdOut.log file shown in the window . If started correctly you should have a line in file like this
2019-10-05 15:36:21.793 INFO [main] org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina.start Server startup in 286923 ms
Thank you for your reply.
The issue is that, I waited over an hour and I am not getting any output or results from the tomcat server, in other words it is not giving me any messages. Can you please advise me on what to do if possible.
Thanks in advance
what do you mean with not getting any output or result from tomcat server ?
the screenshot you posted is normal you should not expect any further output there because everything is written in the tomcat-stdOut.log file under %APPIAN_HOME%\logs directory.
Do you see that file ? are you able to connect to your appian instance from browser ? what errors do you get ?
If appian started in the log file you should see a line similar to the one I showed in my previous reply
I was able to resolve the error, but right now. I am facing another error and I hope it is the last one. This is what I found in the tomcat log file, this is the error "ERROR StatusLogger No log4j2 configuration file found. Using default configuration: logging only errors to the console. Set system property 'log4j2.debug' to show Log4j2 internal initialization logging.". Kindly Advice if you have faced this error or heard of it before.
seems like installation issue , do you have the file <APPIAN_HOME>/deployment/web.war/WEB-INF/resources/appian_log4j.properties ? I would advise to open support case if you do not sort this out
