WebSphere 6.1 Install on Windows 2003 Server - Adding to Profiles

I have a Windows 2003 server with an install of WebSphere 6.1.  I only see the WebSphere program group under a particular login.  If I log in as any other user, I do not see the WebSphere application.  Apparently the person that installed this before me, installed it under one profile and not for 'all Windows users'.  Is there a way to 'add' the WebSphere Admin Console to another profile without having to look at an uninstall/reinstall scenario?

Thanks

If you are in administrator group then you should able to access the adminconsole.



1) start webservice via service with admin user

2) access the adminconsole via browser using http://localhost:9060/ibm/console.

WAS V6.1 installs are now per-user.  The same user ID which installed the product must also be the user ID which updates and eventually uninstalls the product.  So, the behavior of seeing the product listed in only one user's Add/Remove Programs panel is normal for WAS V6.1.

you may try to add WebSphere start menu group to common directory tree (All Users) of the  start menu.
Right click on Start -> Properties -> Customize -> Advanced

Hi Wrc2810

two things might help
1
say WAS was installed under acount "wasadmin"
then
go to
C:\Documents and Settings\wasadmin\start menu (or something similar)
copy all short cuts related to websphere to the same directory of the current user
C:\Documents and Settings\currentUser\start menu (or something similar)


2
use wasservices.exe(under "WAS installation root"/bin) to create a windows service if it was not there ()
for creating a windows service you could refer
