Hello all, i am having a problem putting the administrator account in the appserveradm group to give the write permission to the catalina.out folder. it keeps giving me the message access denied. I have ben looking at some forums on line and trying to get it to work but no success. i have been able to at it to appserveradm GroupMembersip but when it run the command id it tells me that that my groupid is staff. Could someone explain to me how add the administrator to this account that tomcat 7.0.39 is looking for? I am running lion server 10.7 and everytime i try to run usr/Library/Tomcat/bin/startup.sh i get an permission denied message. any help would be helpful. i am trying to steup this server to do casper imaging and i can not get past this step. Thanks.

What have you tried?  Tomcat runs via apache, so maybe you need to add the user or group apache to the group.  Apple uses Directory Server, so you will need to use dscl for some of the permissions.  You can search for "dscl add user to group".

These commands run on the command line.  Some users and groups that are not visible to you in System Preferences--> Users & Groups.  You must use dscl for those accounts.
Display group memberships:
dscl . read /Groups/appserveradmin GroupMembership

Add user:
dscl . append /Groups/appserveradmin GroupMembership apache

Remove user:
dscl . delete /Groups/appserveradmin GroupMembership apache
