The following error was obtained while trying to configure ifolder:
** (/opt/novell/ifolder3/bin/SimiasServerSetup.exe:1981): WARNING **: The following assembly referenced from /opt/novell/ifolder3/lib64/simias/web/bin/SimiasLib.dll could not be loaded:
     Assembly:   log4net    (assemblyref_index=7)
     Public Key: 200a2bd1219e83a8
The assembly was not found in the Global Assembly Cache, a path listed in the MONO_PATH environment variable, or in the location of the executing assembly (/opt/novell/ifolder3/lib64/simias/web/bin/).

** (/opt/novell/ifolder3/bin/SimiasServerSetup.exe:1981): WARNING **: Could not load file or assembly 'log4net, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=200a2bd1219e83a8' or one of its dependencies.


The iFolder server maintains a log4net.dll in the /opt/novell/ifolder3/mono/lib/mono/gac/log4net/ folder.  If this is absent, the above error will be displayed.
To resolve this, copy the log4net.dll from a working server into this path.
NOTE:  The path to the log4net.dll has the version number and the PublicKeyToken as the subfolder below as follows: ..../log4net/<version>__<PublicKeyToken>/log4net.dll
