Dear Experts,
I have installed two websphere application server on two different servers & a deployment manager on a third server for the purpose of clustering. Before federating WAS with deployment manager, the admin. console & samples gallery pages of application server open up, but after federation both the pages are not opening up.Please provide me a solution.
I have attached one of my server console below.
Microsoft Windows [Version 5.2.3790]

ADMU0302I: Any cell-level documents from the standalone Wascluster1Node01Cell

           configuration have not been migrated to the new cell.

ADMU0307I: You might want to:

ADMU0303I: Update the configuration on the wasmainCell01 Deployment Manager

           with values from the old cell-level documents.


ADMU0306I: Be aware:

ADMU0304I: Because -includeapps was not specified, applications installed on

           the standalone node were not installed on the new cell.

ADMU0307I: You might want to:

ADMU0305I: Install applications onto the wasmainCell01 cell using wsadmin

           $AdminApp or the Administrative Console.


ADMU0003I: Node Wascluster1Node01 has been successfully federated.

When you federate an application server into a deployment manager, the administration application is removed.  So, in order to administer any federated, or clustered application server, you must use the administration console on the Deployment Manager.

Does that make sense?

if you want the samples to be included you shoul dhave used addnode -includeApps option.
The reason for federating the nodes to deployment manager is to centrally manage all the servers from the deployment manager so once you do addnod/ federation you cannot access individual profiles using their own admin consoles. You have to go to the deployment managers admin console. After you log in slick application server and then you should see the  list of all the servers for your federated nodes. hope this helps
