Subject On one particular box, Tomcat 7.0.25 runs just fine, but 7.0.47 crashes on takeoff -- some authority problem
Date Sat, 07 Dec 2013 00:59:01 GMT
We've been systematically updating our customers from Tomcat 7.0.25 to 
7.0.47 this week, after we've determined that our webapp runs just fine 
on 47, and 47 runs just fine on AS/400s.

Until now.

We have one customer box on which, if you launch Tomcat 7.0.25, it works 
just fine. But if you try to launch 7.0.47 instead, it crashes on 
takeoff, with this error message (directory name changed to protect the 

> qsh: 001-0018 Error found running command /foo/tomcat/bin/ Permission denied.

Both of the Tomcat versions are within what I'm calling "foo"; I'm 
swapping them in and out by changing the tomcat directory of the one I 
want active to "tomcat," and the other to "" or "tomcat.bak." 
The authorities look exactly the same, from one to the other, on the two 
Tomcat directories, on the corresponding objects within the two 
directories, and on the corresponding objects within their respective 
bin directories.

The only difference is ownership of objects: we have two accounts on 
this particular box, and 7.0.25 is owned by the account I'm not using 
today. But if ownership were the problem, then I would expect 47 to work 
and 25 to crash on takeoff.

For now, I've got that customer back on 7.0.25, but we've already found 
that 7.0.47 seems to work a good deal better, so I want to figure out 
what's the matter here.
