context.xml Changes Do Not Take Effect After Deploying a WAR

With a manual installation, if you deploy a WAR with a custom context.xml, the context.xml file may not be overwritten.

The location and naming convention for this file are: $CATALINA_HOME/conf/Catalina/<host>/<war name>.xml. Typically this will be something like: /tomcat/conf/Catalina/localhost/pentaho.xml. If this file exists, you will have to delete it prior to deploying the pentaho.war if you have made any changes to context.xml.
