When you initiate the OpenAM instance within a tomcat container, you'll see within the catalina log file the initial error 'SEVERE: Begin event threw error' error followed by 'java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError error'

E_WARNING Error in file posts.php at line 313: fopen(http://www.technicalconfessions.com/images/postimages/postIcons/pp425.png): failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found E_WARNING Error in file posts.php at line 313: fclose() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given

The snippet of the error has been taken from the log file.

java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError
at com.sun.identity.agents.arch.Manager.(Manager.java:675)
at com.sun.identity.agents.tomcat.v6.AmTomcatRealm.(AmTomcatRealm.java:67)
at sun.reflect.NativeConstructorAccessorImpl.newInstance0(Native Method)
at sun.reflect.NativeConstructorAccessorImpl.newInstance(NativeConstructorAccessorImpl.java:62)
...
Caused by: java.lang.RuntimeException: Failed to get configuration file:OpenSSOAgentBootstrap.properties
at com.sun.identity.agents.arch.AgentConfiguration.setConfigurationFilePath(AgentConfiguration.java:488)

The error corresponds to the unavailable properties file during startup. The bootstrap properties file contains the initial properties for OpenAM to be initiated during startup (hence the name, bootstrap). This is unrelated to the bootstrap framework, which is the open source OpenAM uses for the GUI design. This file (OpenSSOAgentBootstrap.properties) contains the values used to initiate OpenAM during startup.


SOLUTION

Within the 'setenv.sh' file, whith is likely to be located within your TOMCAT_CONTAINER/bin directory, locate the java options path (JAVA_OPTS) line and ensure that the Dopenam.agents.bootstrap.dir value is pointing to the OpenAM configuration file JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -Dopenam.agents.bootstrap.dir=/opt/apache-tomcat_inst1/j2ee_agents/tomcat_v6_agent/config. Once you've done that, go ahead and restart
