Weekly Rebuild

There is a automatic weekly rebuild of the FME that runs as a cron job. If the FMA database gets a cycle in it, it will completely fail to build. You can tell by looking on deltoid in the log file /var/log/tomcat6/catalina.out. The FME takes about 11 minutes to build its tree whenever Tomcat starts, such as after a server reboot or FME rebuild. If you ever need to run it manually, log into deltoid and do:

su - fmeuser
# you may need to edit the script to choose a different FMA db dump file

A working rebuild looks something like this in catalina.out:

To install the FME:



  • create the fms user and password
  • grant access to the FME database for fms
  • import the FMA into the FME database
    yum -y install mysql-server
    chkconfig mysqld on
    # set up root pass and .my.cnf
    mysql -u root mysql -e 'CREATE DATABASE FME;'
    mysql -u root mysql -e "GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON FME.* TO fms@localhost;"
    mysql -u root mysql -e "GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON FME.* TO fms@'%';"
    mysql FME -u root < /usr/local/data/data13/Protege-backups/fma_p2.dump
    # also install java, etc.
    yum -y install java-1.6.0-sun-devel ant


Due to the protege jar, the FME requires the Java Security Manager with a custom catalina.policy :

rsync -az /etc/tomcat6/catalina.policy /etc/tomcat6/catalina.policy.orig
cat <<EOF >> /etc/tomcat6/catalina.policy 

grant codeBase "file:\${catalina.home}/webapps/FME/WEB-INF/-" {
   permission  java.lang.RuntimePermission "*", "read";
   permission  java.util.PropertyPermission "*", "read";
   permission  java.util.logging.LoggingPermission "control", "";

rsync -az /etc/sysconfig/tomcat6 /etc/sysconfig/tomcat6.orig
cat <<EOF > /etc/sysconfig/tomcat6
