You appear to be running this as user "ngunasek". You need to be root.

run the command as "root" see above you are running by user account "ngunasek"

Hi,

Try as root !!

I assume, swacl will help you to run the same but anyway root permission is required (?).

>WARNING: Could not create the session directory
"/nfs/alicfi/users/ngunasek/.sw/sessions/": Permission denied

(This is only a minor part of your problems.)
This happens to me when I su(1) to root and my home directory is mounted with the root-is-less-than-dirt option and doesn't have permission to write to it.
