landing page doesn't show any content other than the title and logout and edit items, can't drag and drop items.

catalina.out reports a lot of no external item found with and then the id, such asid:cn=HomeManageResources,cn=NavItems,cn=UIConfi g,cn=AppConfig

How are these items populated as objects? Do they come from the config from the landing webapps structure?

I'm importing a userapplication driver from a dev environment and want to make sure I'm not hosing myself when we go to prod in the next month or so.

any ideas on what to do to generate these objects or external items?
