When attempting to apply any of the Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) 6.1.0.3 service packs, the following error in the catalina.out file appeared after applying and attempting to redeploy and restart the OFSAA application :

ERROR
SEVERE: Error filterStart

SEVERE: Context [/ofsa] startup failed due to previous errors

1. Apply PFT 6.1.0.3.0 and FTP 6.1.0.3.0 without errors in log files
2. Clear Apache Tomcat web server
3. Re-deploy and attempt to restart OFSAA application
