Situation:
I installed WS AE 4.0 on Windows 2000. Installation is success. A new IBM WS AdminServer 4.0 services has been added to my Windows Services.

But when I start the services, following comes up:

Event Category:     None
Event ID:     7024
Date:          6/30/2002
Time:          12:09:32 PM
User:          N/A
Computer:     MyPC
Description:
The IBM WS AdminServer 4.0 service terminated with service-specific error 10.


Guys, any idea?

Hi,


Does you WAS40 database exist ?

can you connect to it using your RDBMS command line ?

Your other posts mention IIS as your web server but what are you using for your DB ?

You mantion the ports yo are running on so you must have the Admin Console running, so therefore your Admin server must be running. Is this now fixed ?


Anyway, have a look in your <WASHOME>\logs directory.

There's a few files that may give the answer.

Stop all WAS services and rename activity.log to activity.log.old, tracefile to tracefile.old and stderror.out to stderror.out.old

This will generate new log files so you can concentrate on the current problem rather than looking at old logs.

Restart your Admin server and look at these files in Notepad or whatever. Should provide the answer.



Good luck

check in task manager that no other instance of WAS is running. Stop if any java.exe is running before restarting..

You are right. By the way, I found out that if WSAD already open, WS cannot be up also.
