Use the tomcat of existing tm1 web server for installation


Hi all,

Is there a way to use the tomcat of an existing TM1 web installation in place of the one coming with Canvas installation ?


Hi @sschreurs,

That is not advisable as there are libraries within Tomcat itself that Canvas requires.

In fact, even within Tomcat’s major versions, within Tomcat 7 for example, there are minor updates too that Canvas will need to be there to work correctly.

Then there is also a possible scenario when the server that TM1 is using be changed into another server altogether, i.e. from IIS to Tomcat.



Thanks for reply !
