I have created a Tomcat script inside the /etc/init.d directory which is

#!/bin/bash
# description: Tomcat Start Stop Restart
# processname: tomcat
# chkconfig: 234 20 80
JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/jdk1.6.0_30
export JAVA_HOME
PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH
export PATH
CATALINA_HOME=/usr/tomcat/apache-tomcat-6.0.32
case $1 in
start)
sh $CATALINA_HOME/bin/startup.sh
;;
stop)
sh $CATALINA_HOME/bin/shutdown.sh
;;
restart)
sh $CATALINA_HOME/bin/shutdown.sh
sh $CATALINA_HOME/bin/startup.sh
;;
esac
exit 0

After this I am trying to add this into chkconfig which is as

[root@blanche init.d]# chkconfig --add tomcat
[root@blanche init.d]# chkconfig --level 234 tomcat on

But it is giving me the following error:

[root@blanche init.d]:/etc/init.d$ chkconfig --add tomcat

Please suggest what to do for configuring a Tomcat server as a service.

Why would you use chkconfig on an Ubuntu system? –  womble Jul 28 '12 at 7:45
    
Because as referred from site davidghedini.com/pg/entry/install_tomcat_6_on_centos It is mention their that it is the utility which is used start tomcat at boot time. –  Karan Jul 28 '12 at 9:36

Why would you follow a guide on installing Tomcat on a CentOS system when you want to install Tomcat on an Ubuntu system? –  womble Jul 28 '12 at 10:01
    
I have two machines, 1 for testing purpose which has ubuntu install on it and another is my server machine on which cent os is installed. we need to test it first on ubuntu then move on to cent os. –  Karan Jul 28 '12 at 10:45

Why would you have a testing machine which is a different configuration than your production machine? –  womble Jul 28 '12 at 10:51

So, the errors message points out to the missing LSB tags. I would try to add the tags manually to your custom init script. Here is an example:

#!/bin/bash
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides:          service_name
# Required-Start:    $remote_fs $syslog
# Required-Stop:     $remore_fs $syslog
# Default-Start:     2 3 5
# Default-Stop:      2 3 5
# Short-Description: your_description
# Description:       start web server
### END INIT INFO
....
your code here
....

You can read more about the LSB tags and all possible directives here.

As soon as you have modified your script, run the following command:

insserv init_script_name
