unable to connect WLST to Node Manager using nmConnect()


Using nmConnect() command I was trying to connect WLST to Node Manager but unable to do so.

I get the following error if I give the following command

wls:/offline> nmConnect('weblogic', 'weblogic', 'localhost', '5556', 'base_domain', 'C:\bea9\user_projects\domains\base_domain', 'ssl')

Connecting to Node Manager ...
Traceback (innermost last):
File "<input>", line 1, in ?
File "<iostream>", line 1499, in nmConnect
WLSTException: 'Error occured while performing nmConnect : Cannot connect to the
Node Manager.I/O error while reading domain directory: java.io.IOException: C:\
\bea9\\weblogic90\\common\\bin\\\bea9\\user_projects\\domains\base_domain: The f
ilename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect Use dumpStack() to

I also tried dumpStack(), this is the message I got

wls:/offline> dumpStack()

Try this

 nmConnect('weblogic', 'weblogic', 'localhost', '5556', 'base_domain', 'C:/bea9/user_projects/domains/base_domain', 'ssl')


 nmConnect('weblogic', 'weblogic', 'localhost', '5556', 'base_domain', 'C:\\bea9\\user_projects\\domains\\base_domain', 'ssl')

Basically path separator seems to be an issue
