Re: IBM i profile not created due to profileregistry.xml_LOCK2011-04-18T18:33:03Z in response to duggaDoug,
If you'd send me your log files, I'd be happy to assist you. Please zip up (or jar up) all files in <user_data_root>/profileRegistry directory (where <user_data_root> is the default user data directory of your WebSphere Application Server V8.0 Beta installation) and send them to me at ldhallatusdotibmdotcom. For example, if the user_data_root is /QIBM/UserData/WebSphere/AppServer/V8/Express, then the path name of the profileRegistry directory would be /QIBM/UserData/WebSphere/AppServer/V8/Express/profileRegistry.

Re: IBM i profile not created due to profileregistry.xml_LOCK2011-04-29T19:15:53Z in response to SystemAdminI worked offline with Larry for a bit. After examining my logs, he was able to determine that my problems stem from installing WAS 8.0 beta prior to the loading of the required Java PTFs. From the install guide:
The following PTFs are required for 5761-JV1 (option 11):
While I had downloaded these PTFs prior to install, they did not get applied prior to the install.
They got applied between the install and the profile creation attempt.
I subsequently uninstalled WAS 8.0 beta, and reinstalled.
I was then able to create the profile.
Many thanks to Larry.
