 Summary:

 After installing an APM agent on a JBoss application server, the JBoss service will not start. JBoss is using version 5 and it is packaged as part of an application running on Windows Server 2008 R2.

 Environment:  

 Introscope 9.1x, 9.5x and 9.7x

 Instructions: 

 Use the following steps to configure JBoss for an Introscope agent install:

  • Point the work directory to wily/connectors which is under the installation directory
  • Run the following command to create AutoProbeConnector.jar:

    java -jar CreateAutoProbeConnector.jar -jvm <directory>
    where -jvm <directory> is the jvm directory used by JBoss.
  • Add the following to the JBoss run.conf file:

    -Xbootclasspath/p:wily/connectors/AutoProbeConnector.jar:PathToAgentJar
    -Dcom.wily.introscope.agentProfile=<path-to-IntroscopeAgent.profile>
