Resource mapping is the process of tying a particular file type to a process in the web server that can serve that type of file to a requesting client and identify which file types are not to be delivered to a client.

By not specifying which files can and cannot be served to a user, the web server could deliver to a user web server configuration files, log files, password files, etc.

As Tomcat is a Java-based web server, the main file extension used is *.jsp. This check ensures that the *.jsp and *.jspx file types has been properly mapped to servlets.


Navigate to and open /usr/lib/vmware-vsphere-ui/server/conf/web.xml.

Navigate to and locate the mapping for the JSP servlet. It is the <servlet-mapping> node that contains <servlet-name>jsp</servlet-name>.

Configure the <servlet-mapping> node to look like the code snippet below:

<!-- The mappings for the JSP servlet -->
