Hi Jeanne

Is it possible that your tomcat is behind an apache mod_proxy? In that case I've seen a solution for this previously when a customer has increased the proxytimeout parameter and then bouncing Apache.

Could you please give that a try and let us know how it goes?

Thank you Daryl. The proxytimeout parameter was the issue.

Just to add to this I had to add the timeout to my ProxyPass parameter as defined here
