wdeploy problem with deploy to tomcat server on windows

Hi community members!

I have little question related to wdeploy.

I've used it few times already in the past. I've always had little issues, but finally it always worked. Unfortunately in last two days i can't figure out what is the problem.

I was never sure while using this which path's to provide - destination or source server (we have full installation on one server, but as web application other server is used, which has only tomcat installed, and not from SAP installator but from apache tomcat website).

I use wdeploy gui like i always did. Also web application was few months ago successfully deployed to other server. Now we want to add another web server. All servers are using windows.

I'll describe what i choose while trying to set up wdeploy.

I have checked option Deploy all available SAP BunsinessObjects Web Applicatoins to the server.

I've chosen Tomcat 7.0 as Web Application Server type

Server Instance: destinationHostName (tried also IP)

Service Name: destinationTomcatServiceName (service is disabled, but tried also with enabled)

I've checked Tomcat installed as a Windows Service

as Server Domain Root Directory i've provided: <destination server tomcat path>\tomcat\tomcat-7.0.65\

Then I click 'options' and i provide:

Wdeploy work directory: <sap installation path on source server>\wdeploy\workdir

Web applications source tree location: <sap installation path on source server>\warfiles\webapps

then i click apply and afterwards, when i click 'run' i get:

Error occured during the action deployall

()

Deployment log files are located at:

<log path>

and in those logs i get lots of lines, but none of them tells exactly what the problem was. Its like:

tomcat7.xml:76: Error: The application server is not detected using supplied path.(DEP00301)

and in other log file:

AppSourceDir = O:/SAP BusinessObjects/SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0/warfiles/webapps/AdminTools

Error: The application server is not detected using supplied path.(DEP00301) O:/tomcat/tomcat-7.0.65/

can anyone help?

    Rukaiya, Amit thx for answering,

    both your suggestions are in fact the same - to provide path in config.tomcat, but unfortunatelly i use tomcat7 installation and no config.tomcat7 file found in wdeploy\conf path, so i modified tomcat6 file, I'm not sure if that file was even used by GUI.

    One way or another - the same error occures.

    Is something on the way not to just copy those webapps files from my other web server?

    edit:

    i found this file, but it's values are used as default on wdeploy gui. After modifying all of them i get them as default for gui but nothing changes - error still occures.

    Hi,

    Along with tomcat installation have you installed the java and set the environment variable path at new server?

    Might be this will helps you.

    Thx Bharath and Mahak for your answers. Previous solution worked for me, so I haven't tested yours.
