GW Monitor was installed with the default configuration.  After it was up and running, any changes made to Monitor via ConsoleOne would corrupt via incorrect settings to appear in the GWMONITOR.CFG file.  Once corrupted, accessing the Language Selection page for the Monitor Web Console at http://<server>/gwmon is possible however clicking on the Go button to proceed causes a blank page to be returned to the browser


This has been reported to engineering.  The current workaround is to restore the GWMONITOR.CFG from a backup or copy back an older, correct file.
