When I started to edit tomcat-users.xml and nothing worked, I combed through all directories looking for some hint. I found, that there are several tomcat-users.xml files in my environment and my hope was, that I edited the wrong one. But it was not the reason for my flops.

Are You really sure to edit the correct tomcat-users.xml file?
And did You restart tomcat after editing the file?

Good luck

@ Pat Garner

Your contribution was the reason for me to register at this forum, because I lost many hours till now by searching for the reason of this problem.
The mess is, that with the starting page you get the NOTE: For security reasons .... role "manager" .... role "admin".
No hint to the necessary role "manager-gui" for using the browser to log in as manager.
(Probably it will be written somewhere in the documentation, but it shuld be mentioned on the start page.)
The documentation has the hint to necessary role "manager-script", but if you do not know, that this is not the door for using the browser, the research is in a cul-de-sac.

So thank You very much.
