* Restarted the Tomcat7 Windows Service after the above changes.
Question-1: What other files are involved in this manager login process ?
Question-2: Shall I consider/look at the Folders/files permissions of the tomcat production server running the Alfresco application which may have tweaked file permissions for security reasons ?
Note-1: I have installed the same tomcat version on a Lab VM (Win 2016) and made the above changes/additions and it just worked fine (all the rest is kept by default)
Note-2: The difference I noticed between Alfresco Tomcat implementation and a plain default tomcat Server installation is that Alfresco Tomcat grants onlyRead and Execute on the above files for All Users while the plain installation of tomcat grants Full control on these files by default.
Note-3: Even when Changing the above file permissions to "Full Control" for "All Users" on Alfresco Server, did not help.
