If nodes in cluster have OO installed in different locations, the configuration for the cluster machines gets taken from first up node, regardless of settings in alfresco-global.properties.
I have 2 nodes:
node 1 - Windows machine, alfresco-global.properties setting for OO = c:/program files/Openoffice.org 3
node 2 - RHEL machine, alfresco-global.properties setting for OO = /opt/openoffice.org3
However, node 2 at startup fails to start the Jodconvertor process with error:
18:59:15,777 ERROR [org.alfresco.enterprise.repo.content.JodConverterSharedInstance] Unexpected error in configuring or starting the JodConverter library.The following error is shown for informational purposes only.
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: officeHome must exist and be a directory
Looking in Node 2's JMX interface it shows that the officeHome = c:/program files/Openoffice.org 3
