was 5.1.2 admin console not opening on Win 2000 Professional

Hi Folks,
I got the following error when starting the server was 5.1.2 on win 2000 professional. However i edited the serverindex.xml and changed the port no from 8880 to 8885 and then the server started successfully without errors. But when i type http://localhost:9090/admin, the console doesnt open up.

Any ideas on this is greatly appreciated. Also when i click the admin console link in the " First Steps" , nothing opens up. Do you think i need to change the admin port no too?

ADMU0116I: Tool information is being logged in file C:\Program
           Files\WebSphere\AppServer\logs\server1\startServer.log
ADMU3100I: Reading configuration for server: server1
ADMU3028I: Conflict detected on port 8880.  Likely causes: a) An instance of
           the server server1 is already running  b) some other process is
           using port 8880
ADMU3027E: An instance of the server may already be running: server1
ADMU0111E: Program exiting with error:
           com.ibm.websphere.management.exception.AdminException: ADMU3027E: An
           instance of the server may already be running: server1

           Files\WebSphere\AppServer\logs\server1\startServer.log

Thanks

you have to start the admin server service first.  It's set to startup = "manual" by default.

Hello damonf,

Thanks for your reply, but i do not see the admin server service listed in my windows services nor in the appserver\bin directory. Any clues on this please?I however started the IBM HTTP services and the app server service.

pls check the error below:

ADMU0116I: Tool information is being logged in file C:\Program

8885 was the no to which i changed to from 8880 in the serverindex.xml file yesterday and then server started successfully, but again now i get this error again, any tips??

thanks

My bad ... I was thinking 4.x ... I don't think there's a separate admin service for 5.x.  I might suggest reinstalling your WAS.  Uninstall, wipe, check your services file (c:\windows\etc\services) for that port.

I think in 5.x the admin service is just a separate application.
