  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server Liberty - Web Container              *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The web application may fail to start   *
    *                      and the user will get a timeout during  *
    *                      application validation.                 *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The problem happens due to a race condition that can occur when
    more than one installed application is starting. This race
    condition occurs during the start of the application when the
    server adds the application context root in the VirtualHost map
    , in this scenario only the first application succeeds and the
    other gets incorrect information.
