    Hi Kiran,

    Looks like your issue with the webapps.

    Try cleaning the Tomcat cache for the BOE webapps and let Tomcat re cache it.

    - Stop Tomcat

    - Rename the LocalHost folder to BOE-OLD in C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\tomcat\work\Catalina\

    - Start Tomcat

    New local host will be create

    it will take 15 to 20 mins to build the cache.

    Then try it and let me know if you still have the issue.

    When you're done, you can delete the localhost OLD folder



    if issue still persists, then you can try to redply .

    First try to figure out whether the issue is occurring only for a particular tomcat. If its occurring only for one tomcat,you may proceed with deploymet method for the same as suggested by Prasad.

    Hi ,

         We are facing the same issue on BIP 4.1 SP03: we have  two tomcat on two separated hosts,and there is one apache in front of tomcat.

        When testing the fail over of tomcat,there came the error "HTTP Status 500 - while trying to invoke the method java.util.Properties.entrySet() of a null object loaded from local variable 'globalProperties' ".

       In addition,there is no problem with BIP 4.1 SP01.

    Kiran,

    Mostly these issues occur due to bad or incomplete deployment.

    So, redeploying the webapp solves the issue in 99% cases.
