Error trying to Configure WebAccess Application

After installing and configuring the WebAccess agent, I installed the WebAccess application. Next I try to configure the WebAccess Application. A popup says Tomcat6 is needed and if I would like to install now, I click Yes. After it completes when I click Next I get the following error:

Error: 1

Re: Error trying to Configure WebAccess Application

After speaking with Novell Support, it seems there is a bug in the installation that was causing this problem for me. The WebAccess Application configuration is supposed to automatically install Tomcat6 if not already installed. It does not work.

I needed to add the SLES11 SDK as a repository, install "ecj" from there, and then install all of the RPM packages located in the Groupwise install directory at /common/tomcat6. Then I was able to proceed with the WebAccess Application configuration.
