Issue/Introduction

Description:

Tomcat will appear to initialize successfully but fail to remain active and will shutdown unexpectedly within minutes. You may receive a message that states that the bind exception address is not available

Solution:

It is possible that there is a setting in the client environment that is preventing MSM from binding with the port number defined with the shutdown port.

Update the shutdown port found in the /cai/msmxx/msmruntime/tomcat/conf/server.xml file (Where msmxx = the release number such as msm40 or msm41)

from --><Server port="21150" shutdown='MSMTCEND"
to --><Server port="-1" shutdown='MSMTCEND"

The -1 disables port 21150 which is the port Tomcat listens on for a shutdown command.

Environment

Release:
Component: MSM
