Situation


How do I start the Tomcat service?

Resolution


SLES 12 has replaced SysV and switched to systemd. This has changed how you start, stop, restart, and check status of services.

Examples:
systemctl start retain-tomcat7.service
systemctl stop  retain-tomcat7.service

systemctl restart retain-tomcat7.service
systemctl status retain-tomcat7.service
systemctl start mysql.service

This white paper from SUSE discusses the switch to to systemd in further depth.
