    Hello everyone,

    In my searches for solutions to my problems with VMWare Server 2.0.2 (HTTP 0 errors mainly), I found that one suggestion is to point Apache Tomcat to the latest version of Java. However, the instructions for doing it are for the Windows version of VMWare Server 2.0.2 (which has a "Configure Apache Tomcat" link), and I'm running it on Ubuntu 10.10 (32-bit).

    So, my questions are these:

    How do I configure Tomcat to point to the updated Java?
    What exactly am I looking for in the xml file (I looked in server.xml but wasn't sure of which line(s) to change, if any)

    Now the stupid question (because I don't want to spend all day searching), on a default installation of Ubuntu, where do I need to point the configuration to? I installed Java as sudo, so it's in a system-wide location.

    Ultimately I'm hoping this solves my problem (which is a HTTP 0 The server encountered an unknown error. message when I try to add hardware --which takes me back to the login screen).

    Have a great day:)
