It sounds like I'm in good shape then. I guess I'll just ignore it unless I find that other issues are related to it. I didn't delete the mercury portal--just the site. Glad to hear you do the same thing on new installs. Much appreciated!

You can delete the mercury site with no side effects. It's the first thing I do in a new install.
If, however, you deleted the mercury portal (which is a different thing altogether and would require you to delete code) then you might be in trouble. I'm not sure of the link between the mercury portal and the SkinnableCharonPortal which is what's in use now though.
I'd be looking elsewhere for the cause of the error. That said, its not an error, just a warning.

Or would there be calls to mercury anyhow at some points, even though I’ve disabled it? If I should be recreating mercury as a step toward troubleshooting this issue, Is there any way to recreate the site without manually keying in records into the database?

Subject: Re: [Deploying Sakai] IsCourseSite There is a portal interface called mercury (like /portal or /xlogin) that is used mostly by developers for testing and configuration purposes. I don't know if deleting it would could problems (I didn't know there was a mercury site), but all things being equal I'd probably just leave it alone :^) SMD.

(Sorry for what could be a double-post if you’ve already received this before. In Nabble, it looked like my previous message on this topic got appended to the Evaluations System discussion just recently concluded.) Whenever I open the Sites tool or the Worksite Setup tool, I get this error in catalina.out: 2009-08-24 20:56:50,503  WARN http-localhost%2F127.0.0.1-8080-Processor12 org.sakaiproject.site.impl.BaseSiteService - isCourseSite(): no site with id: No error message appear in the browser, and things appear to function normally. Has anyone seen that before? I think the only site I deleted was the “mercury” site…should I not have done that?
