Deploying the Adobe Primetime DRM Server for Protected Streaming

Before you can deploy the Adobe Primetime DRM Server for Protected Streaming, you must have installed the versions of Java and Tomcat as listed in the Requirements topic.

The Primetime DRM Server for Protected Streaming package includes flashaccesserver.war. If you:

  • Want to deploy this WAR file, you need to copy it to Tomcat’s webapps directory.

  • Have previously deployed the WAR file, you may need to delete the unpacked WAR directory ( flashaccessserver in Tomcat’s webapps directory).

  • Want to prevent Tomcat from unpacking WAR files, edit the server.xml file in Tomcat’s conf directory and configure the unpackWARs attribute iby setting it to false.


If you have configured Tomcat to include commons-logging.jar on the System classpath (not required for the Primetime DRM Server for Protected Streaming) then you must configure commons-logging to use Log4J.

The server optionally uses a platform-specific library ( jsafe.dll on Microsoft Windows or on Linux for optimal performance. You can copy the appropriate library for your platform from thirdparty/cryptoj/platform to a location that is specified by the PATH environment variable or LD_LIBRARY_PATH on Linux.


You should only use the 64-bit version if both the operating system and the JDK support 64 bit. Otherwise you need to use the 32-bit version.
