Is it possible to configure JON (RHQ) to use the Linux service command to restart JBoss EAP instances ?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Is it possible to use the service command i.e "service jboss stop, start and restart" in rhq?  In the JON GUI is possible to initiate the stop and start script using INVENTORY > CONNECTION but this is not a viable option for us at present.
  • We already have our a custom jboss start/stop information tied into the init script and do not want to have to recreate that same information in rhq for every jboss server.


  • JBoss Operations Network (JON) 2.3.x
  • JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP)
    • 5.0.x
    • 4.x
