already installed.

package ‘tomcat’ do
version 'some older version’
end

“roll back” is a misnomer here. You could roll back if you had
file-system level isolated snapshots. I wouldn’t recommend it.

I would bring up new machines with older versions of tomcat and kill
the others, or drop them out of service and downgrade.
