I'm setting up a new load balancer in front of our JSS and was going to use tomcat8 since the 9.93 Linux install guide recommends that. However, the same guide also recommends Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, which doesn't have tomcat8 in the package manager.
I decided to setup 16.04 LTS to make it simpler as I can just "apt-get install tomcat8" there.
Is anyone else running 9.93 on 16.04 with tomcat8? Any gotchas that I should know about?
It's not on JAMF's recommended OS list and for that reason alone, it should be avoided until it is on the list.
There's a lot of changes under the hood. init.d and upstart are gone, replaced by systemd. There's a reason why my JSS in a Box project doesn't support this OS and has to manually install Tomcat 8 for 9.93 onwards.
Hi guys, working on that problem as well. We have a setup with a manual install on Ubuntu 14.
When trying to apt tomcat 8, it's a no go.
Running a vm with Ubuntu 16 and manually installing JSS seems to be ok.
So would JAMF support a manually installed Ubuntu 16 with tomcat 8?
