That is a valid point but not the issue at hand.

I understand the message, it says tomcat cannot write that file. What I do not
understand is how it cannot write that file.

Right, that is a symlink to /etc/tomcat5, which has all the properties as
decribed for /usr/share/tomcat5/conf/ (if I had tested /usr/share/tomcat5/conf
then the information provided would have been for the symlink and not the
target)


So the question remains, what could have changed on the RHEL 5.5 system between
last week and present to make tomcat complain. Unfortunatly the backups of the
system were only on /usr/local and /home so theyt were of no help and the rpm
log only indicates a kerbos update.
