    JBoss 7.2.0 doesn't rotate log file when run as service

    Jennette Heikes Newbie

      I am running JBoss 7.2.0 on Windows Server 2008; I have the same issue on my Windows 7 development workstation. I have set up JBoss 7.2.0  to run as a service using the instructions at Jboss 7.1.1 as Windows service (with minor changes in the service name, and that my log file is server.log instead of standalone.log). When I start JBoss using standalone.bat, it renames server.log with a date and creates a new log file, just as it should. But if I run it as a service, the file does not get renamed, and JBoss eventually overwrites server.log (after generating a Java I/O error due to the fact that the file is initially in use). service.bat appears to be properly referencing and invoking standalone.bat, and all of the configurations specified therein (standalone.xml, logging.properties). The service starts up and runs fine otherwise, it just doesn't rotate the log file. I have checked Windows permissions on server.log and all folders on its path, and SYSTEM has full permissions.

       

      I have no idea what else to try. My service.bat is below. TIA for any suggestions.
