I'm trying to secure an existing website with Novell Access Manager Gateway according the basic config manual of Novell. When setting up a protected resource with the authentication procedure 'Name/Password - Form', we are getting an HTTP Status 500 error, instead of the login window.

Unfortunately I'm not able to find anything in the log files what could cause the problem. The version of Access Manager we are running is 3.1.4-27. I hope someone can help me out to fix this issue.
