Description Orion Poplawski 2010-07-16 18:32:03 EDT
Description of problem:

/etc/init.d/tomcat6 sources /etc/sysconfig/tomcat6, then runs /usr/sbin/tomcat6 which sources /etc/tomcat6/tomcat6.conf which is basically the same as /etc/sysconfig/tomcat6 and overwrites those values.

I would suggest making /etc/tomcat6/tomcat6.conf a symlink to /etc/sysconfig/tomcat6 or something similar.

Also, tomcat6 probably should probably create and own /var/run/tomcat6 owned by tomcat and put the pid file there to avoid the file creation shenanigans of the init script.  Helps with systemd too I think.
