I have a strange problem. I had installed WAS 18.104.22.168 on Sun Solaris 5.10 as root and everythign worked fine. I was able to start and stop servers, launch console, create cluster .
I then changed the ownership of AppServer and all directories below to wasadmin.
After that only the dmgr is starting . The nodeagent and the other servers are giving
[3/24/10 13:00:25:945 AST] 0000000a AdminTool A ADMU0128I: Starting tool with the AppSrv01 profile
[3/24/10 13:00:25:948 AST] 0000000a AdminTool A ADMU3100I: Reading configuration for server: nodeagent
[3/24/10 13:00:32:913 AST] 0000000a AdminTool A ADMU3200I: Server launched. Waiting for initialization status.

and other log files under /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServ
agent should contain failure information.
Attached is the trace file of startServer.log
