Pinned topic Unable to create Profile for WAS 8 for developer in Ubuntu 11.04 Server

‏2011-08-12T06:35:09Z |
Dear Members,

I installed the Installation Manager and then the WAS 8 for developer. The installation was successful till this point. I tried creating the Profile, but the wizard was unable to complete the process. It is creating appropriate folders, scripts etc under WAS8_install/AppServer/profiles directory.
Please can you let me know what is going wrong.

Regards

Venkata Sundar M.

    More information would be needed to know why the profile creation was unsuccessful.

    The log file at "WAS8_install/AppServer/logs/manageprofiles/<PROFILE_NAME>_create.log" will need to be examined. Depending on what that log file indicates, it is possible that log files within "WAS8_install/AppServer/logs/manageprofiles/<PROFILE_NAME>/" and "WAS8_install/AppServer/profiles/<PROFILE_NAME>/logs/" would need to be examined as well.

      Dear Alex Schultz,

      sorry for the late reply. I have attached the create log. The other requested log are either empty or not available.

      Thank you,

      Venkat.

        Can you please confirm that /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/logs/manageprofiles/AppSrv01/wsadminListener.log
        does not exist ?
        If it does, please provide this file for further analysis.

        If it doesn't, can you please try creating a profile via command-line with :

        /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/bin/manageprofiles.sh -create -profileName Test01

        ... and report if this succeeds or fails (if it fails, as above, please provide
        /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/logs/manageprofiles/Test01/wsadminListener.log if it exists).

          Hi,

          I tried to create the profile with profile name as "profile01".
          Got the following error message:

          INSTCONFFAILED: The profile could not be created. For more information, consult the /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/logs/manageprofiles/profile01_create.log file

          The PMT log is attached in the next message.

          The server is Ubuntu 11.04 64bit. I have installed necessary 32bit libs (as suggested in the ibm site) to get the IM installed on the machine.

          Thank you and Regards

          Venkat.

            Hello. My name is Daniel and I am working on problem.

            I would like to thank you for supplying the logs before.

            In order for me to proceed with reproducing the problem I need to know weather you were logged in as a root user or some other user on Ubuntu.

            Also, I would like you to supply us the output of running <WAS_HOME>/bin/versionInfo.sh
            Best Regards,

              Hi Daniel,

              I have attached the output of versionInfo.sh (VersionInfo.txt).

              I login using a normal user. To run the manageprofiles.sh, I used "sudo".
              This include the installation of IM was also "sudo".

              Thank you and Regards

              Venkat.

                Can you check what version of /bin/sh you are using with 'ls -l /bin/sh' ?

                If this returns 'lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 2011-06-01 13:09 /bin/sh -> dash' ...
                ... then you've found the reason: WAS does not work with the stripped-down dash, it needs a full bash.

                You can fix this with

                'sudo dpkg-reconfigure dash' and answering 'no' to the resulting dialog.

                This will replace the link from /bin/sh to /bin/dash by one to /bin/bash.

                The only downside is, that it will make your system boot slightly slower.

                Hope this helps,
                Rainer

                  It works! Thanks redrain.
                  I wonder why WAS is so sensitive to the type of CLI - it shouldn't be. Anyway WAS should check the type and at least inform about it or even reconfigure itself to use the required one - it should be fixed.
