Application server in WebSphere 6.1 ND not starting

We have WebSphere 6.1 ND installed on Windows 2003 server. I have just one Application server instance running in WebSphere. We take daily offline backups in the morning , prior to starting backup which is all automated we stop WebSphere app server using a stop script that is scheduled to run daily at 4:56AM. The script runs just fine.

However after the backup is run automatically the TWS (tivoli workload scheduler) is configured automatically to execute another batch script on the windows server to start websphere app server. This script has been failing to start app server since last Saturday morning for no reason. No patches were applied on the server nor to websphere it just stopped working. Only work around is I get paged and I login remotly onto the server and kick start the same script and IT RUNS JUST FINE. I have no clue whats going on since the same script starts app server when I run it manually and it is not when auto run by TWS. Can anyone throw some light on this issue. I am attaching the start script and the output of the script generated when TWS runs it for your reference. ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED.

Hello,

Sorry I missed sending the information. The log activity that I have that shows that websphere app server was not coming up is the script output. There is no activity in the StartServer.log nor in the SysltemOut.log that shows any signs of this issue.

No output in Sysltemout when the issue occurs, if the windows server is rebooted based oin your opinion could this be causing the anamoly ?

The above options provided guided me in to the root cause of the issue. It was related file permissions being changed.
