Server upgrade 10.6.1 to 10.8.1 failed.

Hoping someone can potentially help me out. Upgraded our enterprise setup from 10.6.1 to 10.8.1. Thankfully got through all our hurdles with the Portal upgrade and I thought I successfully got Server upgraded. But unfortunately it’s not letting me log in to the Server Manager or Admin pages.

Server appears to be functioning; logs are being created. Hosted features are working/display; but the admin and manager at <FQDN>:6443\arcgis\ timeout without displaying and any command line utility that uses :6443 fails.

We determined that IIS is working fine and that the connector for port 6443 exists. I’m fairly confident it’s not a firewall issue. I believe it’s an issue with Apache Tomcat; I don’t see it running in my services, and I think that Apache needs to be running for it to recognize my primary site administrator username/password?

We’ve tried to repair the install and a fresh install (without upgrading) to only have the same problem.

I’m not primary administrator on this virtual machine, so resetting things will take up to a month (with really no guarantee that the same issue wouldn’t happen again). Time we really can’t afford; client is becoming more and more frustrated.

Any ideas will be very much appreciated.
