In a standard installation, the Tomcat server running SuperWEB2 is installed on the same machine as the machine running SuperSERVER.

If you want to install Tomcat/SuperWEB2 on a different machine to SuperSERVER, you need to configure the connection between SuperWEB2 and SuperSERVER.

  1. Follow the standard installation instructions for SuperWEB2.
  2. Run Tomcat at least once so that the contents of the SuperWEB2 War file get extracted to the <tomcat_home>\webapps directory.
  3. Open the file <tomcat_home>\webapps\webapi\WEB-INF\data\.repository\administrationServerCatalog.xml in a text editor.

    Make a backup copy of this file before making any changes.

  4. Locate the following section of the file:

    <sa:administrationServer id="defaultprofile">
            <sa:host corbaport="9230" registryport="9234" rmiport="9231">localhost</sa:host>
            <sa:configServer protocol="http" host="localhost" port="9000" basePath="/v1/config" />
  5. Replace localhost with the hostname of the machine running SuperSERVER. You may also need to change the port numbers if you are running on non-standard ports.

    To avoid potential DNS issues, you should ensure you use a fully qualified domain name wherever possible,

  6. Save the changes to administrationServerCatalog.xml and restart Tomcat.
