This one just came in via a feed. I ran into this recently during my first forray into WAS 8 … The errors kicking in were a great way to develop my shaky WAS confidence. I solved it because i deal with Linux allot and access rights/file rights are a commkn problem when a team use different/personal IDs when installing systems instead of a common account. Both are acceptable as long as everybody plays by the rules.
For my friends from the Domino world this is similar to a Domino server not having the correct rights to system databases and therfor crashing. Does not happen often but is can.
WAS is not hard, jump in and learn!
