           Summary: After graceful restart using mod_proxy_ajp, couldn't
                    speak AJP to Tomcat until a full restart of httpd
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.2.3
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: mod_proxy_ajp
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: martin@mbs3.org


After a graceful restart of our RHEL 5.5's Apache 2.2
(httpd-2.2.3-43.el5.x86_64), all four of our webservers complained that:

[Tue Aug 17 08:48:54 2010] [notice] Graceful restart requested, doing restart

In the Tomcat 5.5.30 logs, we saw hundreds of:

All I can figure is that this a bug in the AJP connector on the Tomcat side,
though doing a 'real' (i.e. not graceful) restart of Apache httpd fixed the
issue. I'm submitting the issue to the Apache side as well, though, since a
full restart fixed it.

The only change during the graceful was editing the balancer members of an
unused vhost.
