Hi I am trying run multiple tomcat instances on same node/host with different ports. For second tomcat instance I am explicitly defining connector port with 8081 using tomcat::config::server::connector, but puppet master instead of updating exiting Connector port in the second tomcat instance, it is defining new tag at the end of server.xml file and due to this I am end up with having two connector port (one is 8080 and 8081). Also, the default connector port 8080 taking precedence over 8081 (or server not recognizing 8081 port)

Is there any solution to update exiting connector port instead of creating new connector tag in the server.xml using puppet master.

Here is the puppet master site.pp file snippet

class { 'java':
package => 'java-1.8.0-openjdk-devel',
tomcat::install { '/opt/tomcat9':
  source_url => 'https://archive.apache.org/dist/tomcat/tomcat-9/v9.0.0.M1/bin/apache-tomca
tomcat::instance { 'tomcat-first':
  catalina_home => '/opt/tomcat9',
  catalina_base => '/opt/tomcat9/first',
tomcat::instance { 'tomcat-second':
  catalina_home => '/opt/tomcat9',
  catalina_base => '/opt/tomcat9/second',
tomcat::config::server { 'tomcat-second':
  catalina_base => '/opt/tomcat9/second',
  port          => '8006',
tomcat::config::server::connector { 'tomcat-second-http':
  catalina_base         => '/opt/tomcat9/second',
  port                  => '8081',
  protocol              => 'HTTP/1.1',
  additional_attributes => {
    'redirectPort' => '8443'
