      Description

      While executing shell post-step, I am attempting to do a "sudo service tomcat stop", the jenkins server crashes completely and the build fails with exception below:

      [workspace] $ /bin/sh -xe /tmp/hudson1433417204994586409.sh
      + sudo service tomcat stop
      Stopping Tomcat JVM: Build was aborted
      FATAL: null

      On my ci box tomcat is running as a service as the tomcat user. Running "sudo service tomcat start/stop" works fine from the command prompt. I need to issue the same commands from within jenkins build.

      This is a new install of v1.544, I'm running on 64-bit Amazon Linux (Centos/RedHat) with plenty of memory and storage. Jenkins is configured as a service and started stopped in the same way "sudo service jenkins start". There are no other stack traces or errors that I can identify in the jenkins log in /etc/sysconfig or in /var/log/messages.

          Sorry, but I cannot reproduce this problem, because I don't have a CentOS / RedHat box. Seems like a specific problem regarding your setup. There are new plugin and Jenkins versions now. Is this still relevant to you? I will close the ticket and you can reopen it, if you found a way to reproduce for others.
