We hit an issue with attempting to deploy patch 001 to our mid tier services due to some changes in 18.08, security config and typos in the BMC batch files.
The following issues were identified:
1) Tomcat restart scripts in ARMonitor have changed from Service start/stop to Cataling start/stop batch files
Due to security restrictions we have removed the SHUTDOWN port from tomcat, therefore these scripts will not work, and the system needs to use the windows service instead..
Create new batch files to stop and start tomcat via windows service
2) Cache persistence means Tomcat can take 2-3 minutes to stop, longer than the stop service timeout
Ensure the batch files above have a loop to check for the service has successfully stopped before completing. ARMonitor waits for command to complete before allowing delpyment to continue. If the service is still running the deployment will fail
