Applies ToRSA Product Set: Security Analytics
RSA Version/Condition: 10.5.1
IssueFollowing upgrade from 10.4.1 to 10.5.1 Java won't start and therefore jetty won't start.
CauseAfter Upgrade from 10.4.1 to 10.5.1, java gets updated, however Puppet /etc/puppet/modules/rsa-java/manifests/init.pp is not checking for the Java directory.
Puppet tries to fix Java by pointing the symlink /usr/bin/java to the old location which is not present any more.
In the   /etc/puppet/modules/rsa-java/manifests/init.pp Puppet checks for java_alternative_path => '/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk-',  this symlink is not present any more.
Java keystore is not loaded correctly, hence jetty won't start.
ResolutionEdit the following file

Make sure the following line is pointing to the correct Java root directory
java_alternative_path => '/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk-',
