The instructions that we provide for enabling Basic authentication in CLM include steps to modify the application context configuration files in server\tomcat\conf\Catalina\localhost.  Tomcat 5.5 used to automatically extract and rename the {context.xml} file inside each war file. 

In Tomcat 7 (bundled with RTC 4.0/CLM 2012, the context.xml files are no longer extracted and renamed automatically, so our Basic authentication steps cannot be followed.

Tomcat 7 documentation at http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-7.0-doc/config/host.html describe a propery 'copyXML' that could be able to restore the Tomcat 5.5 behavior.  Other work around is to copy all {context}.xml files under directory "server\tomcat\conf\Catalina\localhost" from 3.x deployment to 4.x deployment.
