Update to SP04 : Tomcat does not start


I think that I have solved my licence issue (see previous thread), but Tomcat does not start. I've applied PL02 after this SP4, that's not better.

I have a serice called "ServeurPortail16" pointing to:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Sybase\Portail PowerAMC 16\Tomcat\bin\tomcat6.exe" //RS//ServeurPortail16

The last messages in Tomcat log when I try to start this service are :

16 janv. 2015 10:28:36 org.apache.tomcat.util.digester.Digester startElement

GRAVE: Begin event threw exception

java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.catalina.mbeans.ServerLifecycleListener

    at$ Source)

16 janv. 2015 10:28:36 org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina load

ATTENTION: Catalina.start using conf/server.xml: Error at (31, 78) : org.apache.catalina.mbeans.ServerLifecycleListener

16 janv. 2015 10:28:36 org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina start

GRAVE: Cannot start server. Server instance is not configured.

The conf/server.xml is below, I don't know what to do with it :-\    Any idea ?

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>

    Hi Christophe,

    Have you tries just going to the base Tomcat URL to see if Tomcat is not running vs. the PowerAMC deployment?

      The support told me to reinstall from scratch. I had another issue with the license, but I completed the install. Technically Tomcat runs, but the pàortal hangs after logging.

    Hi Christophe,

    I had similar issues with the portal when I upgraded to SP04.

    I was able to solve it by installing it from scratch to the default installation directory in the setup: "C:\Program Files\SAP\PowerDesigner Portal 16".
