Description Eric Lilja 2022-06-21 19:15:35 UTC
Using apache-tomcat-9.0.64.exe to install on Windows 10, I supplied a installer config file using the /C-flag.

The file contains:
JavaHome=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-

All options were honored, except TomcatAdminRoles, it remained at "admin-gui,manager-gui" (i.e., lacking manager-script)

I did not use any other flags and I also manually selected the host manager to be installed

I tried moving the option, switching line breaks, let file end with trailing newline and vice versa, but nothing helped.

Note: It is recommended that you do not enable both the manager-script and manager-gui roles for the same user as that allows the CSRF protection to be bypassed.

I can see why the TomcatAdminRoles aren't being set as expected. I am working on a fix.
