    Do I have to stop Tomcat before editing the server.xml file, or can I just edit it and have the changes just take effect at nightly reboot when Tomcat is restarted then?


    Tomcat must be stopped before the server.xml file is edited.

    Additional Information

    The information stored in /m1/voyager/xxxdb/tomcat/conf/server.xml can be referenced by Tomcat at both startup and shutdown. In order for startup and shutdown to be performed correctly, this file should only be edited when no Tomcat processes are running.
