can't we create multiple instances of tomcat7 in ubuntu?

Hi, I created duplicate instance of tomcat by creating a directory under /var/lib/tomcat7-a. Later i updated server.xml with new port i copied file and web.xml.

finally created init service for tomcat7-a and updated with defaults. I tried to start the program when i pose a command like, service tomcat7-a start it gives “tomcat7-a not installed” means, it stops at below script in init program, if [ ! -f “$CATALINA_HOME/bin/bootstrap.jar” ]; then log_failure_msg “$NAME is not installed… kjfkdj” exit 1 fi

what should i do now?
