There is a bug in Tomcat 5.0 on OES2 SP1 Linux (not SP2!)

after updating to the latest tomcat version tomcat5-5.0.30-27.42
tomcat deletes all webapps !!!

the catalina.out logs the following:

2010-04-09 10:34:47,582 [main] INFO org.apache.catalina.core.StandardHostDeployer - Removing web application at context path /NetStorage
2010-04-09 10:34:47,589 [main] INFO org.apache.catalina.core.StandardHostDeployer - Removing web application at context path /nps

sounds hard but thats the fact...

Novell checked this out after opening a SR and confirmed a bug.

the solution for now is to backrev to tomcat5-5.0.30-27.40
and reinstall iManager and NetStorage

hope that helps somebody...
