How can I execute the JBoss EAP 6/7 using Systemctl?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Is there a proper systemd service unit available for running JBoss EAP 7 Standalone server as a systemd service?
  • It is possible to use the default EAP 6 init scripts with systemctl?
  • Multiple JBoss EAP instances do not start with systemctl scripts.
  • Do you have a supported upstart script for JBoss EAP? for RHE 7 and would like to use the new package?
  • If we kill one of the servers (kill -9 PID) that is managed by a slave host controller, does the host controller restart the server? I don't see it restarting - does it have an option to configure restart? Does the slave host controller or process controller restart itself if it goes down?
  • I've set the /etc/jboss/jboss-as.conf:

But the startup timeout is approximately 150 seconds
