I am trying to get tomcat loading so that I can fix a GroupWise Webaccess
problem. The tomcat log reads in part something like the following:

2007-11-13 09:56:00,542 [main] ERROR org.apache.commons.digester.Digester -
Parse Fatal Error at line 120 column 9: The string "--" is not permitted

Catalina.start using conf/server.xml: org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: The
string "--" is not permitted within comments.

The server is OES2 (Sles10 sp1) updated as of this morning. Can anyone point
me in the proper direction to get this fixed?
