Subject Running tomcat 5.18 as a service under Windows 2003
Date Tue, 10 Feb 2004 18:51:22 GMT
Hello friends.   I'm experiencing an issue wherein if we run Tomcat 5 as a
service in windows 2003 there are times when you cannot restart the service
through the service manager.  It dies at stop time and the services panel
will forever report the status of the service as 'stopping'.
Ctl-Alt-Delete will not allow you to kill the tomcat.exe process
(restricted).  Bouncing the machine helps but is obviously not a real
solution.  Tomcat is dying, web requests to the default page return a 404.
You can also restart tomcat from the command line and it runs fine, with
the exception that it still shows as 'stopping' the services manager.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.  Thank you.
