comment OpenCMS throwing Java Exception on TomCat Start
this is likely what the kind soul who set up the machine realised and never documented. Thus OpenEJB was deployed after start up which caused issues on restarts.

comment OpenCMS throwing Java Exception on TomCat Start
I've removed temp files from /usr/local/tomcat5.5/work/Catalina/localhost/OpenCMS and bounced the server to no joy unfortunately.

comment OpenCMS throwing Java Exception on TomCat Start
ok, thank you for that, will see what I can do, but the fact the error remains when i redeploy the app from the war is confusing.

comment OpenCMS throwing Java Exception on TomCat Start
I've tried redeploying the app from the .war and hit the same error. I've tried a working backup from a tar.gz and that throws the same unfortunately. The server has had nothing but graceful shutdowns and the log opencms s of don't seem to indicate any trauma last time it went down. I'm not a java programmer though so what in that error leads you to believe there is a corrupt file?

comment VMware Virtual Machine Clustered Filesystem Setup
Worked well enough to point me to the crux of the solution. Short version would be, create a new disk pointing to an RDM on a different scsi device. so say SCSI1:1, VMware will create a new SCSI controller automatically and on that controller set shared disk access as required.

comment Is there a way to clone an existing VM on an ESXi server without having to re-import it?
if it is a one hit the trial may work for that.

comment VMware Virtual Machine Clustered Filesystem Setup
I have a LUN and can point a single VM to that LUN using RDM. That machine can then access that disk without issue. VMware however then greys out the RDM option on new disk creation because that LUN is in use. Basically it seems limited to a 1 to 1 ratio of LUNs to VMs. Linking the same disk with the RDM mapping to multiple machines faults with a disk lock error as normal.
