Additional Information:

Note: After restarting the Tomcat, the original SBOPWebapp_BIlaunchpad, SBOPWebapp_CMC log folders remaining in C:\ will be stale and have to be manually deleted. This folder will not be deleted automatically as there is no script implemented to delete any folders automatically.
