You get the following error during startup of WebSphere Portal 6 (WP6) on Windows in the case that you registered WebSphere Portal as a Windows Service. This may occur during installation of Fixpack 6.0.1.
- Go to the services list in Windows (Administrative Tools>Services)
- Select the service for WebSphere Portal
- Open the service's properties
- Set the startup type to "Disabled"
The timeout for services in Windows does no longer apply and the startup time of WebSphere Portal does no longer matter. If you had the problem during fixpack installation you may set the startup type back to "Manual" afterwards.
