[las_users]LASv8.6.1/2 install problems

Dear LAS wizzards,

Having a pretty old LAS running I took the struts vulnerabilitry as a chance to update.

During installation I encountered several problems and need some hints or help.

I got version 8.6.1 from the download page.

- unpacking in $TOMCAT_HOME/content, renaming to LAS
- configuring catalog.xml and threddsConfig.xml as described in
- there is no log4j.xml file in $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/thredds/WEB-INF/ . So I skipped this, but I am missing ferretIOSP.log

Then I followed:
- set JAVA and ferret environment.
- I had to modify configure.pl. "java -version" returns "openjdk version "1.8.0_131"" So I changed ^java to ^openjdk
- configure runs through. (usual ferret 7.2, no proxy, example datasets)

I get warnings, among others
[javac] /srv/tomcat/content/las/build.xml:257: warning: 'includeantruntime' was not set, defaulting to build.sysclasspath=last; set to false for repeatable builds
[javac] warning: Implicitly compiled files were not subject to annotation processing. [javac] Use -proc:none to disable annotation processing or -implicit to specify a policy for implicit compilation.

    [javac] 13 warnings

The F-TDS is working. I can access the test- datasets with the browser and with ferret from another machine.

LAS comes up with two maps. I can select data sets, but coordinates and axes are not recognised properly. Since no images can be generated, I did not explore all options. The error is a missing fondat.dat, the ferret environment is not correct. I checked FER_FONTS in the backend - looks correct. With this environment I can run ferret with success on F-TDS data by hand.
As a next try, again from scratch, I went through the steps described in:
Finally the same result. I did not find out:
- do I need FerretBackendConfig.xml or FerretConfig.xml?
- is the correct enclosing xml-tag <application> or <ferret>? I checked both with no success.

So I downloaded version 8.6.2. After running configure, F-TDS is working.
- LAS comes up with two live-maps, all boxes and buttons as usual and a select-box with "temperature" in the middle (most probably from the "Subset of WOA") - selecting coads_climatology everything is fine. Images, vectors, animations, x-t-plots, y-t-plots. The range-selector has end-time "jan" initially, but .... - reloding and selecting initially Levitus-> salinity changes the checkbox to SALINITY, no chance to select a depth value. Changing the checkbox to TEMPERATURE the choice Z(METERS) shows up but one has to wait for the image forever. The request cannot be cancelled. - selecting "NCEP Monthly Pacific Ocean Analysis Data at Multiple Depths served by IR" I have to switch the checkbox for the variable to get the choice for depth and time. Finally, I get lat/lon plots for different depth and time. For lon/z-plots the range of z cannot be adjusted, the checkboxes for start and stop consists only of tiny arrows. - the WAO subset cannot be displayed. I contains only one variable and I cannot change the variable to get the correct axis. - switching now back to Levitus, I can get lat/lon-plots, but no vertical secions. Again the checkboxes have no values.

Before I spam the community with logs and more details - does anyone have hints or ideas, how to proceed?
