Summary0003597: SymmetricDS Not Starting in Tomcat because of UUID file
DescriptionI am trying to setup Symmetric on a tomcat 9. I have correctly setup tomcat and the war was deployed successfully. I have managed to correct all other faults but this one by keeping an eye on the log. The issue i am having is as follows;

Thank you very much for your response.
I have managed to correct the above issue by setting, setting the SYM_HOME variable did not seem to help me.
The next issue i am have is the message below...
[corp-000] - RegistrationService - Cannot register a client node unless a node group link exists so the registering node can receive configuration updates. Please add a group link where the source group id is corp and the target group id is store
[corp-000] - RegistrationUriHandler - store:001:? was not allowed to register.
I have manually tried to insert a record in the table manually but that results in foreign key constraint errors.
My setup includes an instance running on a VPS server with tomcat and a local node running symmetric.
I would really appreciate some help on the above error...

On your corp database you'll need to set up one (or two) node group links in table sym_node_group_link. The typical configuration is to configure a "client pushes to corp" link and a "corp waits for pull from client" link. The issue you are having at this point sounds more like an incomplete configuration than a bug in the software. You might consider posting your issue to the SymmetricDS support forums for additional help.
