    Where is the Native Utilities package?

    Lionel Orellana Newbie



      I'm trying to follow the Installation Guide to install JBoss as a Windows Service (https://access.redhat.com/site/documentation/en-US/JBoss_Enterprise_Application_Platform/6.2/html/Installation_Guide/Install_JBoss_Enterprise_Application_Platform_6_Microsoft_Windows_Service.html)


      Procedure 4.13. says "If the Native Utilities for Windows Server package has not been installed as part of the JBoss EAP 6 installation, download the relevant 32-bit or 64-bit package from the Red Hat Customer Portal at https://access.redhat.com"


      Well, I can't find it! Following that link I've gone into Download Products & Updates and then Packages. I've tried searching for "native" or "utilities" or even "jboss".


      Where is this package?

          I couldn't find the Native Utilities either.  However I think I found a workaround.  I was trying to setup on Windows Server 2003, so these instructions are for that platform.  I bet you could do just about the same thing on other versions of Windows though.


          1. Download the Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools from here.

          2. After installing, create a new Windows Service named <NameOfService> (I chose to name it JBoss on my system) by running this command in the command line:

             "<PathToResourceKitTools>\instsrv.exe" <NameOfService> "<PathToResourceKitTools>\srvany.exe"

             NOTE: on my machine <PathToResourceKitTools> was "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Resource Kits\Tools\"
          3. Now open Registry Editor by running "regedt32.exe" or "regedit"

          4. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\<NameOfService>

             NOTE: on my machine this was HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\JBoss

          5. From the Edit menu add a new Key named "Parameters"

          6. Select the Parameters key and from the Edit menu add a String Value named "Application"

          7. Double click on the Application value and in the "Value data" box enter: <PathToJBossFolder>\bin\standalone.bat

              NOTE: the <PathToJBossFolder> will be wherever you placed the JBoss EAP 6.x folder you extracted from the zip archive
          8. Close the Registry Editor and open "services.msc"

          9. You will see <NameOfService> as a service in the list - double click it

          10. Select "Startup type" of Automatic, and then click the "Start" button


          I think that this will do what you want.


          Good luck!
