Subject Tomcat Upgrades Ignoring Existing Installs
Date Wed, 11 Nov 2015 21:15:06 GMT
Hi there.

We currently run Tomcat v7 in our environment. We use Shavlik Protect as our patching utility.

On all of our application servers we dedicate the C: drive to the Windows OS then we add an
E: drive for all additional program installations such as SQL, Tomcat, etc. So, we have a
decent amount of servers with Tomcat 7 installed on the E: drive.

When we scan these servers with Shavlik Protect, it is seeing that we have Tomcat security
patches missing, for instance we have 7.0.63 installed now and it's showing that we're missing
the latest 7.0.65 patch. The problem is when we push this patch using Shavlik Protect (which
I guess uses a quiet mode) the Tomcat installer isn't honoring our existing install on E:
drive and it installs the latest version in the default path on C: which messes things up.

Is this a known issue with the installer running in quiet mode? This seems to be the only
application (out of hundreds) that we can't patch because of this sort of installer bug.

Thanks in advance.
