Symptoms

On OFSAA 8.0.2, it appears that Tomcat 8.x randomly crashes during startup OFSAA 8.0.2.  The following error appears in the catalina.out files randomly when starting services:

ERROR

"SEVERE [Catalina-startStop-1] org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.startInternal A child container failed during start"

The problem is that this error is random. In about 20 % of the times we are able to successfully start it only after clearing the cache.
