Hello all,

We currently have an alfresco installation running on tomcat 6. It was working properly until we had to restart tomcat. We get the following error in the log file:

We don't use wcmquickstart nor TransferService, so is there any way to disable these to get rid of the error ? Or maybe some way to continue alfresco startup after this error ?

Thanks!
