A vulnerability scan found the following on the Test Data Manager Portal system:
Medium - 12085 Apache Tomcat Default Files. See more information at link
  1. Stop the CA Test Data Manager Portal Service
  2. Delete the "ROOT" application directory from the Portal installation
    Default location:
    C:\Program Files\CA\CA Test Data Manager Portal\tomcat\webapps\ROOT
  3. Restart the CA Test Data Manager Portal Service
This will break the redirection to http(s)://[TDM PORTAL HOST](:port)/TestDataManager should a user navigate to http(s)://[TDM PORTAL HOST](:port)  -- without the "TestDataManager" application within the URL. The ROOT application contains an index.html that will redirect to /TestDataManager out of the box.
Additional Information:
See the Apache Tomcat Documentation for the vendors option of the default files for the ROOT application.
