Installing the EASA Service

At this point you should be ready to install the EASA service on the EASA Server. The installation process is different on Windows and Linux computers. Please use the appropriate set of instructions below.


Note: If EASA or Tomcat has been set up to run as a service for a previous version of EASA, then you will need to remove the old EASA or Tomcat service first before installing the latest one. See the Removing the EASA Service page for details.


Windows EASA Server

On a Windows computer, the installation procedure is as follows:

  • If it is not done already, log on to the EASA Server as Administrator.
  • Open a Windows command prompt and change directories to the directory location of the EASA service installation executable file by entering the following command:
 cd <EASAROOT>/tomcat/bin
  • At the prompt, enter the following command to install the EASA service:
 service install
  • Restart the computer.

The EASA service has now been installed and started automatically on your Windows EASA Server.

Linux EASA Server

On a Linux computer, the installation procedure is as follows:

  • If it is not done already, log on to the EASA Server as root.
  • Open a shell window and create a symbolic link to <EASAROOT>/tomcat/bin/easa.sh in /etc/init.d/easa by entering the following command:
 ln -s <EASAROOT>/tomcat/bin/easa.sh /etc/init.d/easa
  • Next, you will determine the run level under which EASA will run. If you want EASA to run without loading the X Server, the EASA startup script should be linked to run level. You do this by performing the following instructions:
    • Create a symbolic link from /etc/init.d/easa to /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S<num>easa, where <num> should be an integer bigger than the last one already in use in the /etc/rc.d/rc3.d folder. For example: S30easa.
    • Create a symbolic link from /etc/init.d/easa to /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/K<num>easa, where <num> should be an integer bigger than the last one already in use in the /etc/rc.d/rc3.d folder. For example: K30easa. If you want to run EASA together with the X Server, the EASA startup script should be linked to run level 5. You do this by performing the two steps above while replacing rc3.d with rc5.d.

The EASA service has now been installed on your Linux EASA Server.
