After deploying hotfix (version CHF_IMS-14.4.1-CHF002, CHF_JCS-14.4.1-CHF002, CHF_PS-14.4.1-CHF002) on development servers. After deployment we see idm restart issue. Services starts- stops and start up automatically. We followed below steps
Stop Jboss and ensure that the /JBOSS_HOME/standalone/deployments directory includes only a .dodeploy version of the .ear files in addition to the actual application's .ear files. You may need to delete any .failed or .deploying files and create .dodeploy files for the im application's two .ear files. In other words the directory should have these files for Identity Manager to properly deploy:
After you create the .dodeploy files, start JBoss again.

Verify ownership of the ../deployments directory and its contents.
In the above case the files were inadvertently owned by 'idm' user instead of the weblogic or wildfly user that runs the application server.
Correcting the ownership and/or permissions resolved the issue.
