More sandbox security preventing site from working

Hello, all,

We have a server in production that is not co-operating when sandbox security is switched on.  If sandbox is off, everything works great.  But we are not supposed to run this without sandbox.

I have to redact the log information, a bit, but I have the following that happens whenever sandbox is turned on.

SEVERE: The web application with context path [/xxxx/projectshare] was not deployed because it contained a deployment descriptor [META-INF/context.xml] which may include configuration necessary for the secure deployment of the application but processing of deployment descriptors is prevented by the deployXML setting of this host. An appropriate descriptor should be created at to deploy this application.

INFO: Deploying web application archive X:\webapps\xxxx#projectshare.war

Aug 6, 2015 9:42:24 AM org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase addChildInternal

SEVERE: ContainerBase.addChild: start:

  • org.apache.catalina.LifecycleException: Failed to start component [/xxxx/projectshare]

Any thoughts on what could be causing this are appreciated.  I can tell you that this CF server is using its own Java, which is version 1.6_29.
