I'm new to ArcGIS server - I followed all installation instructions on the ESRI site for RHEL:

- Installed xorg-x11-server-Xvfb
yum install xorg-z11-server-Xvfb
- Installed ArcView server in /home/arcgis
./Setup -m silent -l yes /home/arcgis/licence.ecp
- Copied the arcgis for server startup script to the rc.d startup folder and did the mods
cp /home/arcgis/server/framework/etc/scripts/arcgisserver /etc/rc.d/init.d
added # chkconfig 35 99 01
chkconfig --add arcgisserver
chkconfig arcgisserver on

It then says that after a reboot you should be able to reach the management interface with
http://<server name>:6080/argis/manager

I checked if a service was running on the local machine and listening on that port
telnet localhost 6080

But connection timed out

After crawling through the code I see that tomcat is not running - nothing is said about starting the locally provided tomcat in the guide - so I found where to start this


Now i see its listening on port 6080

I try again and I see a web page starting with "Please Wait" that won't go away

I check the error console and I see lots of errors related to help not funding en-za (english locale for South Africa)
I copy the /home/arcgis/server/help/en to /home/arcgis/server/help/en-za

Now the loading page get a little further - but there are many object errors related to dojo.js:15 - see attached dump of the web console.

Am I missing something obvious here
