Access is denied on startup

Symptoms

On startup, the server log displays the following:

java.io.FileNotFoundException: ..\logs\symmetric.log (Access is denied)

The web console is unavailable with the following:

HTTP ERROR: 503, Problem accessing /. Reason: Service Unavailable

Explanation

The "Access is denied" error can happen on Windows 7 under user accounts without enough privilege.

Resolution

When you use the "Run Server" shortcut, try right-clicking and selecting "Run as administrator". That should give the privileges needed to write to the log file and run the server.
