Hi Guys,

Today I did a restart of the tomcat, on our IDP server and since then,
its just refusing to start up normally!
Not sure, what went wrong but, it just does not come up fine...
I tried a few things I knew about it but to no avail, it still adamant
on not starting up...

Here is the excerpt from the log, if any could point me in the right
direct or provide some troubleshooting steps then that would be really
great!
