With default installation it was working fine, how ever after we install our product it fails to start.
I though it is nothing to do with the product i have installed because it was working fine in 32 bit machines.

This problem occurs only in 64 bit machine and specific to JDK.

stdout still missing...SystemOut.log and SystemErr.log would be helpful...
anyway I'd first check if the JAVA_HOME points to default Java or Websphere java

It dont have any logs in stdout (created blank file).. in server1 logs it just have above attached files.

JAVA_HOME is pointing to other SUN JDK 1.6.

looks very much like a difference in the java versions and plugins installed...try comparing the java versions in the one that worked and this one

Needn't be the reason, but IBM website insists on rhel4U2 for WAS 6.1 and they are typically very specific to patch levels on all components involved

When you "installed Web Sphere 6.1 in Red Hat Linux 4.0 Intel 64 bit machine", did it complain, or give any warnings about the Operating System version?

Yes it says the prerequisites has been failed and reported it should have rhel4U2.

My machine is Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4.

Open a command prompt, and try to execute the Java executable installed by WebSphere:

/opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/java/jre/bin/java -version

What is the result?

Ok, that tells us that the JVM is able to start successfully.  It also indicates that you are executing a 64 bit version of the JVM, and therefore of WebSphere.

Please note that even though, as you indicated in http://#a26143759 above, your JAVA_HOME refers to a "Sun JVM", the JVM installed with WebSphere is an "IBM J9 JVM".  This is the one that the Application Server needs to use.

In the "startServer.log" file that you attached, above, it contains the following message:

A   ADMU3011E: Server launched but failed initialization. startServer.log, SystemOut.log(or job log in zOS) and other log files under /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/AppSrv01/logs/server1 should contain failure information.

Please find, and attach this file (SystemOut.log) for our review.

Thanks

There is a problem with IBM libinstrument.so for 64 bit machines, working with IBM for fix.

Thanks for all your responses.
