Sun Cluster Data Service for Apache Tomcat Guide for Solaris OS

Location of the Tomcat Home Directory for Scalable or Multiple Masters Configurations

If you intend to install Apache Tomcat in a scalable resource group, create the Tomcat Home directory and its dynamic data on local storage.

This required because Apache Tomcat uses the directory structure to store its configuration, logs, deployed applications and so on.

If your local storage is not big enough, you can use a Global File System on the shared storage.

Caution – Caution –

In this scenario, the deployment of Tomcat applications needs to occur on every node where Apache Tomcat is hosted.
