So im starting up RAD and it hangs up after a minute and then I get this canceling the server start window alert. Its modal so I dont have any option but to allow the cancel. There are no errors in the server error log. The server start log looks fine as well...

Just delete your server and add it back again, this will fix the issue.

I removed the old server and created a new one. However Im getting the following. I still get the canceling start server wndow. Im leaving it open just to see if the server eventually starts up. If it does my problem is why its taking so long as well as how to get disable that cancel start server message.

Looks like there is already an instance of server running in background, stop the server wait for few seconds, press ctl-alt-del and make sure there is no java process running (do not kill javaw process), if there is java process running kill it. Start the server this will fix issue, if not you should delete your WAS profile and create a new one.

Appreciate your suggestions Yasir. Unfortunately I gave up and reinstalled RAD ... I just got too frustrated with it... Thanks so much though
