While starting tomcat using the command on solaris 9 platform its giving me the following error .The Tomcat version being used here is 5.5.7.

# ./
Using CATALINA_BASE: /usr/tomcat
Using CATALINA_HOME: /usr/tomcat
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /usr/tomcat/temp
Using JRE_HOME: /usr/java
touch: /usr/tomcat/logs/catalina.out cannot create
# ./ /usr/tomcat/logs/catalina.out: cannot create

Any tips to solve this would be highly appreciated...

Sounds like the user that Tomcat is running under doesn't have sufficient permissions to write to the TOMCAT_HOME/logs directory.
