Interesting Tomcat not starting problem

I was working with a customer on an upgrade to IDM 4.5.2 and switching from JBoss to clustered Tomcat. I must say, the 4.5 install process is much better than in 4.02, which is always nice to see. We got OSP doing SAML federation to NAM, and then behind a NAM reverse proxy, and it…

NAM4.2 and previous versions have a Central Metadata Repository where an XML file can be uploaded and the Metadata in the file can be used to create Service Providers (SPs) and Identity Providers (IDPs) and supply the needed metadata for the SPs and IDPs. Reloading the Central Metadata Repository again will update the internal data so that if new SPs and IDPs are created, they will use the new Metadata from the reloaded repository.
