So what does ls -la /opt/apache-tomcat/ say?

Can you show us your nsswitch.conf? It should support NIS and local 
files (preferably files before NIS) for passwd and group. If it doesn't, 
you need to add all usually local accounts to your NIS database.

What does 'getent passwd utwww' and 'getent group utadmin' say?

FWIW: That the utwww user and the utadmin group use the next free 
uid/gid that useradd/groupadd provide is a design flaw. You can work 
around this by manually creating the user and group with a chosen 
uid/gid (for utwww you can also use a user name of your choice) before 
running utconfig. This may by unrelated to your current problem, but it 
will prevent problems from collision between the utwww/utadmin users and 
your next NIS additions.
