Has anybody had issues with tomcat ports using multi method servers and backgroundmethod servers in Windchill 10.1 M040?

If you accidentally configure to run more than one Solr instance, then
you will run into such issues.

Otherwise you shouldn't.

RE: WIndchill 10.1 M040

Do you have multiple BGMS configured?

Even if you are using a Windchill cluster, with SOLR enabled, only ONE BGMS can have embedded Tomcat enabled.

There are many KB articles related to this, here is a good one to start with:

While wt.tomcat.embeddedMode.solr seems to provide more fine grained configuration choices (YES, NO, ONLY), I have seen issues with this andrecommendusing the wt.manager.cmd.<bgms>.param.12=<null>to disable embedded Tomcat onall non-SOLR instances.
