Errors when attempting to deploy OpenSSO8 with Tomcat
By Gregory Bedigian on Dec 15, 2008
If you keep getting the following error on the first screen of the config wizard just after entering the amAdmin and Agent passwords: "Base directory specified :/opensso cannot be used - has preexisting config data., refer to install.log under /opensso for more information."
Try the following to resolve:
1) Stop Tomcat.
2) Remove the /opensso directory, the default configuration directory of OpenSSO where the bootstrap file is created.
3) Remove the /.openssocfg/AMConfig_\* entry which corresponds to your existing installation.
4) Start Tomcat.
5) Attempt to reconfigure OpenSSO.
