Pinned topic Can't start Websphere Portal v6.1 on WAS 7

‏2013-08-15T03:14:30Z |

Hello, 

When i tried to start portal server "Websphere Portal v6.1 on WAS 7" in RAD, it would always prompt an error: 
An internal error occurred during: "Starting WebSphere Portal v6.1 Server on WAS 7 at localhost".
After close the prompt, the portal server state kept STARTING until time out. But in the backend, it's found the server were actually started, which
can be verified by server's SystemOut log.
 
As the server state kept STARTING, any publish operation is not allowed, which is a big trouble to me. 
Any comments are appreciated, thanks a lot.

    If your environment is clear, I'd like to you to check your network configuration:

    1) Make sure 127.0.0.1 is pointing to localhost

    2) IP_Address is pointing to you machine hostname ( with both full name and short name)

    3) disable IPv6 could get lucky by -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true

    4) try to start from stand alone WPS or WAS instead from RAD

    ...

    I can not image more for this moment, hope you lucky...

    Thanks ROTTNEST, I tried your suggestions, but seems in vain. When i tried to start WPS standalone (outside RAD), it worked fine. But when i tried to start the WPS in RAD, the server state always STARTING, even the WPS was really started. The server state can't change to started.

    Function is OK? As long as it works, let it be. Perhaps the status is  not synchronized because of timeout?

    -- Did you try to reload the view or perspective?

    Yes, the function is OK. I tried to close and show server view. The server state could not reflect. Anyway, let it be for the moment. Thanks a lot for your helpful comments. :P
