Description Ralf Hauser 2009-01-01 07:25:45 UTC
in a server.xml,
there are n > 4 connectors declared on a physical machine with multiple ip addresses.

Due to a dns change, connector 2 and connector 3 end up with the same ip address.

This rightfully causes connector 3 not to get up and running with
ERROR [main] (Catalina.java:553) - Catalina.start:
LifecycleException:  service.getName(): "HTTPSmyApp3";  Protocol handler start failed: java.net.BindException: Address already in use:8443

        at org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap.main(Bootstrap.java:432)

However, all subsequent connectors 4..n will not start either - isn't a dns-misconfiguration having too big effect on a mostly correct server.xml config?
