Guide for updating / Patching Tomcat??

Hello Everyone,

I was just curious as to whether anyone knows how to patch the included Tomcat web server included with some of the various Symantec Products including OpsCenter on Windows x86/64...??

On top of backups, I do Nessus and OpenVAS scanning on our network and the versions of Tomcat supplied are seemingly absolutely plagued with vulnerabilities and other issues.

As it isn't a vanilla install, its not like I can just patch up or install the newest version over-top...  I don't want to take a chance and update and get into a situation like with PHP where functions break or are deprecated, etc....

Any help or pointers would be appreciated...

Maybe solved.

Think I might have gotten it..  Snapshotted the OpsCenter VM in vSphere....

Got the newest Tomcat/Apache 6 Stable.. (6.0.32)

Unzipped and replaced the...

c:\program files\Symantec\OpsCenter\Webserver\bin

c:\program files\Symantec\OpsCenter\Webserver\lib

c:\program files\Symantec\OpsCenter\Webserver\webapps\ROOT

with the files from 6.0.32 leaving the config files from

c:\program files\Symantec\OpsCenter\conf intact at their default install from OpsCenter as being in the same version I figured the functionality would be the same and I didn't want to risk overwriting critical Symantec modified settings or variables (port definitions, etc)...

Seems to be running... Webserver/service starts fine.. OpsCenter is still pulling data from the Master NB 7.0.1 server...

Going to monitor the situation for awhile before I can officially confirm...
