If the Web Portal license expires, you might need to restart the Tomcat service.

It is only necessary to restart the Tomcat service when the license for a web application, such as the Web Portal, expires.


  1. Install the new license file using operating system commands.
  2. Ensure that the library search path is correct on the server that is the host for the core software. This requirement applies to the libstdc package on a Solaris server and the libaio package on a LINUX server.


  1. Log in to the server where the core software is installed.
  2. At the OS command line, navigate to the bin directory.
  3. Run one of the following commands appropriate to the OS:
    Table 1. Restart tomcat commands
    Operating System Command
    UNIX ./manage-modules.sh service restart tomcat
    The command output starts like this:
    * Starting 'tomcat Default'... [ OK ]
