tomcat6 won't start on SL6

view story

http://serverfault.com – I arrived at work today to find that tomcat6 won't start. When trying to stop and start with the following command(s): service tomcat6 stop ; > /var/log/tomcat6/catalina.out && service tomcat6 start && less +F /var/log/tomcat6/catalina.out It reports back OK for starting tomcat, but using ps, no tomcat process is shown. The catalina.out file doesn't show anything at all either, completely blank. Upon looking at /var/log/tomcat6/tomcat6-initd.log, I see two lines repeated over and over on every attempt: /usr/sbin/tomcat6: line 60: ${2}: ambiguous redirect /usr/sbin/to (HowTos)
