Can any one explain the below error message in WAS v61 console.

SRVE0255E: A WebGroup/Virtual Host to handle /favicon.ico has not been defined.

The above message appeared as a Runtime error in admin console of WAS v61.

SRVE0255E exception
After a successful installation of the product, you may see the following exception in the SystemOut.log file about the favicon.ico file:

[5/4/09 22:57:27:759 PDT] 0000002b webcontainer E com.ibm.ws.webcontainer.WebContainer
handleRequest SRVE0255E: A WebGroup/Virtual Host to handle /favicon.ico has not been defined.
This missing favicon.ico file is used in the WebSphere Application Server administrative console to display an icon in the browser for a bookmark or on a browser tab that is opened to the application. You can safely ignore this exception.
