this message could use more info...

CLI171 Command deploy failed : Trying to create reference for application in
target server failed; The context root [EnterpriseApplication6-war] in
application [EnterpriseApplication6-war] is already in use by another
application on this instance [server].

Steps to get this message:

1. deploy the attached ear file using 'asadmin deploy'
2. attempt to deploy the attached war file with 'asadmin deploy'.

Possible improvements:

1. Name of the application that currently is using the context root. The name
of should be the one that someone would use as an argument to 'asadmin undeploy'

2. A hint that doing asadmin undeploy then deploy would help, though that could
go into the error Messages reference/guide.

3. Put something into the server log when this happens. Currently, there is
nothing in the log, so a user cannot go to the Admin GUI logviewer and then look
up a detailed message about the error.
