Why do I get "log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger" message on server st

Hi,

When I start my WebLogic 9.2.2 server, I get these error messages:

log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (org.apache.myfaces.webapp.StartupServletContextListener).
log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.

But this is odd because I start with this server start option, "-Dlog4j.configuration=/export/third-party/etsbea/application_conf/wls_9.2.2/nps_config_gui_conf/NPSConfigGUILog.properties". I have verified the properties file exists. In fact, here are its contents ...

==========begin properties file================
Log4j configuration file.

log4j.category.NPSPortalLog=DEBUG, A2
! DO NOT want additivity for this category
log4j.additivity.NPSPortalLog=false

# Available levels are DEBUG, INFO, WARN, ERROR, FATAL
#
#
# A2 is a DailyRollingFileAppender
#

log4j.appender.A2=org.apache.log4j.DailyRollingFileAppender
log4j.appender.A2.file=/export/third-party/etsbea/application_logs/nps_config_gui_logs/nps_config_gui.log
log4j.appender.A2.datePattern='.'yyyy-MM-dd
log4j.appender.A2.append=true
log4j.appender.A2.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
log4j.appender.A2.layout.ConversionPattern=%-5p %d{ISO8601} - [%C::%M] - %m%n
==========end properties file==================
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
