  • How do I install WebSphere Application Server when logged on to a Windows NT domain?

    A: If you log on with a domain user account and try to install WAS, make sure:

  1. You are added into the local administrator group (YOURDOMAIN/YOURUSERNAME must be in the member list of the local administrator group). If not, the installation will stop and say you are not allowed to install.
  2. Your username is also a local user account on the computer you are using.
  3. Your local user account is a member of the administrator group.
  4. Your local account password matches the domain account password.

If you do not have a local account, installation continues but you might not see any services. If your passwords don't match, you can still install but your services might fail, because each service uses the domain password to start the service and validate the password against the local machine.


  • How do I re-install the administrative console in WebSphere Application Server V5.0 NetWork Deployment?

    A: Sometimes, when Network Deployment is added and removed from WebSphere base, you need to re-install the admin console. These instructions are for UNIX (AIX) systems, which require a more manual procedure than do Windows systems. The UNIX prompt from a command window is represented as #>, and the wsadmin prompt is represented as wsadmin>. This differentiates the prompt from the resulting system responses.
