    I'm afraid you are going to have to post a little more information i.e. more detailed error messages, selected snippets from the SystemOut.log etc.

    If you are using an external LDAP server such as Domino, is it started ? Have you started the Cloudscape network server (assuming you are using Cloudscape, and not an external database).

    Please post more information and we'll try and help further.

    Hi,

    I'm facing the same problem right now.

    The starting script tells following:

    ADMU3200I: The server starded. Waiting for initialization
    ADMU3011E: The server started but failed to initialize....

    The output text isnt exactely the same, because the output is in another language, so I translated it.

    Here's a copy of the startServer.log entries:

    01.09.05 10:49:54:094 PDT 14781525 ManagerAdmin I TRAS0017I: Der Status des Start-Trace ist *=all=disabled.
    01.09.05 10:49:54:154 PDT 14781525 AdminTool A ADMU3100I: Die Konfiguration des Servers wird gelesen: WebSphere_Portal
    01.09.05 10:50:04:900 PDT 14781525 AdminTool A ADMU3200I: Der Server wurde gestartet. Es wird auf den Initialisierungsstatus gewartet.
    01.09.05 11:01:57:785 PDT 14781525 AdminTool A ADMU3011E: Der Server wurde zwar gestartet, aber die Initialisierung ist fehlgeschlagen. Möglicherweise finden Sie in den Protokolldateien des Servers nähere Informationen zu dem Fehler.

    Hi Mike

    You'll need to give us more information but, on the offchance, did you start the Cloudscape network server before you started Workplace ? I've hit that problem before, when I've used startServer rather than startWorkplaceServices.

    Have a trawl through PortalServer/log/SystemOut.log - if you see lots of database-related errors, then Cloudscape is a good bet.

    Regards

    I'm starting the system with the startWorkplaceServices.bat located in the PortalServer directory.
    The starting procedure says that the Cloudscape is already running and then starts with the output I have put in the post before.

    Here is what I've found in the ServerStatus.log:

    01.09.05 12:44:23:406 PDT 6ac5a270 AdminTool A ADMU0509I: Application Server "WebSphere_Portal" wurde nicht erreicht. Der Server scheint gestoppt worden zu sein.

    means in english: App Server "WebSphere_Portal" couldn't be reached. Server seems to be stopped.

    could the hostname be a source for this failure? I googled around and found something in this direction?
    How can I start the Web Sphere Server manually?

    Mike

    On its own, this message doesn't tell us WHY the server cannot be reached. Please can you (a) ensure that the servers are stopped using the stopWorkplaceServices script (b) clear the contents of the PortalServer/log directory (c) start the server using startWorkplaceServer and (d) post the entire SystemOut.log.

    Ok simple, the server1 doesn't start cos it needs cloudscape.
    Solutions:
    {WSE_DIR}\PortalServer\rootscripts\subtasks>startnetworkserver

    and then start server1
    It should work

    I am new to websphere. i just installed WAS6. when i run ivt tool using #./ivt.sh server1 default I get an error as ADMU3200I: Server launched. Waiting for initialization status.
    ADMU3011E: Server launched but failed initialization. Server log files should contain failure information.

    Also I Started networkserver (in cloudscape directory) before starting WAS
    cd /opt/IBM/WebSphere6/AppServer/cloudscape/bin/networkServer/
    1. ./startNetworkServer.sh

    still I am getting the same error for initialization when i ran ivt.sh again.

    (1). I don't know what is cloudscape, do I need some kind of configuration before running # ./startNetworkServer.sh
    (2). What can I do so that I don't get initilization error
    Thanks

    Hi

    You'll need to post a little more information from the actual log files. Please can you: -

    • backup -or- clear the log files in /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/logs
    • run the IVT test again

    Once you've done that, please review SystemOut.log and SystemErr.log in the same logs directory, and post any relevant messages.

    With regard to Cloudscape, as far as I am aware, you'd only need to start the server ( using startNetworkServer ) if your application requires a local database ( although I've not yet done much work with WAS v6 ).

    PS There is a specific WAS forum at: -

    http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/forums/dw_forum.jsp?forum=266&cat=9

    in case it helps.

    Workplace Services Express does not support WAS 6.1.
    The WAS 6.1 questions here should be reported to the WAS forum. You will get better support there.

    Step to resolve the "ADMU3011E" error.

    Solution for windows-XP
    Let WPS_HOME = C:\IBM\WebSphere

    Step (1): Go to command prompt
    Step (2): cd <WPS_HOME>\wp_profile\bin
    Step (3): execute file "osgiCfgInit.bat" at command prompt

    Now, start server using startServer.bat

    Step (4): startServer.bat WebSphere_Portal -user wpsadmin -password wpsadmin

    serverName : WebSphere_Portal
    userName : wpsadmin
    password : wpsadmin
