Error description

  • When attempting to upgrade or uninstall the IBM Rational License
    Key Server (RLKS) Administration and Reporting Tool (ART) the
    install will fail on stopping the ART if the server.xml file has
    been modified to remove the following line from the "<connector
    " definition:
       protocol="HTTP/1.1"
    
    This protocol tag is deprecated for security reasons, and the
    installer needs to not depend on this tag to locate the ART's
    tomcat instance.
