Unable to stop Tomcat instance that was started as a foreground process


I was implementing HF 10 today in one of our environments to fix health broker service which was broken. There were multiple bug w.r.t health broker fixed in HF 10 so that prompted me to do so


While installing , it failed at a point where it was unable to stop tomcat for horizon-workspace


Exception was as below



Before we started HF 10 installation every pre-requisite checks were done


As above exception was clearly stating that it's unable to stop tomcat responsible for horizon-workspace , went ahead and verified if the status is actually " Running " or in a different state



Not sure what was the reason behind status of these two services being "UNKNOWN"


But a quick restart of these services


service vco-configurator restart

service horizon-workspace restart


Did bring them back into " RUNNING" state


Post that vRA 7.4 HF10 installation was successful.


Moral of the Story

Do not just go by status of VAMI service registrations , quickly do cross check if the underlying application services are in "RUNNING" state
