Resolving The Problem

The admin console can always be reached with


OR you can follow the directions below to update the isclite application on each dmgr/standalone application server profile.

The admin console will be restarted after completing the steps below. Ensure that all users have logged out of the console before beginning.

These steps need to be completed using the profile where the console is running. This will be the deployment manager profile for federated environments and the application server profile for stand-alone servers.

1) Open a command-prompt or terminal window and navigate to the <profile-name>/bin directory.

2) Copy the provided script to this directory

3) Run one of the following commands:

    • Windows: wsadmin.bat -lang jython -f

      Unix: ./ -lang jython -f

    • Note: Depending upon your environment, you may need to pass the following arguments:
      • -user <username>
        -password <password>

NOTE: If the admin console (isclite) contains certain product extensions, the provided script WILL NOT run. When PI51061 becomes available, the script will be modified to allow it to run on all environments.
