Dear preethi,

This is most likely a configuration issue caused by the repackaging done for the RPM package. I really dislike yum/rpm/apt packages for Tomcat. The mostly cause more problems than they solve and to top it off they stick you with old versions of Tomcat.

Best install a real Tomcat from Apache.org and these problems tend to go away.

If you want to debug and solve this problem yourself, check out the configured stop port (default 8005) in Tomcat's server.xml. Look for a line like: <Server port="8005" shutdown="SHUTDOWN">. To check if Tomcat is listening on that port, use netstat as discussed here: http://java-monitor.com/forum/showthread.php?t=22
