check "oslevel -r" on both servers and install them with same ML package that exceeds minimum level required for websphere. Also install websphere maintenance fixes.

The serverStatus command script needs to communicate with something in order to determine the status.  In a federated, or clustered environment, the communication would be directed towards the Deployment Manager (DM), which in turn, needs to communicate with the nodeagents (NAs) to determine the status of the managed nodes.

So, if your DM, or any of the NAs are down, for some reason, they will be unable to determine the status of an Application Server, even if it is still active.

Does that help any?

The solution was to run the server status from the appropriate profile directory instead of the default directory which only picks up the Deployment manager .   Thanks to all of course patches are a first step but we are already on a higher level than when that issue was reported.  It was basically my misunderstanding of the websphere config

Additionally, you could execute the script from the default bin directory, and specify the

-profileName Dmgr01

with the appropriate profilename..

Thanks for the assist & the points.

Good luck & have a great day
