Query on Linux Patch Installation

Hello Experts,

I need your inputs to figure out the issue I faced post applying Linux patch.

As a part of change implementation UNIX team applied patches and upgraded OS from version SuSE Linux 11.2.3 to 11.3.6. Post upgrade we could bring up Tomcat successfully; however realized Tomcat SSL has stopped working.

We reviewed Tomcat logs and found that APR (Apache Portable Runtime) libraries got installed and which affect our application functionality:

=== Tomcat Log Snippet ===

 Jun 4, 2015 8:24:47 AM org.apache.catalina.core.AprLifecycleListener init
 INFO: Loaded APR based Apache Tomcat Native library 1.1.30 using APR version 1.3.3.
 Jun 4, 2015 8:24:47 AM org.apache.catalina.core.AprLifecycleListener init
 INFO: APR capabilities: IPv6 [true], sendfile [true], accept filters [false], random [true].
 Jun 4, 2015 8:24:48 AM org.apache.catalina.core.AprLifecycleListener initializeSSL
 INFO: OpenSSL successfully initialized (OpenSSL 0.9.8h 28 May 2008)
 Jun 4, 2015 8:24:49 AM org.apache.coyote.AbstractProtocol init
 INFO: Initializing ProtocolHandler ["http-apr-8443"]
 Jun 4, 2015 8:24:49 AM org.apache.coyote.AbstractProtocol init
 SEVERE: Failed to initialize end point associated with ProtocolHandler ["http-apr-8443"]
 java.lang.Exception: Connector attribute SSLCertificateFile must be defined when using SSL with APR


Because of business criticality, we rolled-back the installed OS patch, and everything started working as expected.

Could you please advise on, does below mentioned patch install as such libraries? If yes, can we exclude it during installation? (Custom Install).

Environment Details:
  • Server OS version before upgrade: SuSE Linux Platform 11.2.3
  • Server OS version after upgrade: SuSE Linux Platform 11.3.6
  • Tomcat Version: Tomcat 7

Could someone help in identifying issue please?
