Installing CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise as a service with a specified Java JDK on Linux


Programs started using service do not inherit the environment variables set in the shell’s path. You will need to modify /etc/default/Jenkins or /etc/sysconfig/jenkins (depending on the Linux distribution) to change the Java it uses. The Jenkins_Home location can be set in this file also.
