Hello,

I need some help trying to start and stop Websphere Application Server. When I issue WAS start or stop I get this Exception. Could anyone direct me how to get this resolved on windows OS.

ADMU7707E: Failed while trying to determine the Windows Service name for server: server1;


---Complete Exception Trace, when I issues stop server---

Rajiv,
From what I can find on the web, it would appear that you are running vista:

If changing the user account control does not work, I would try to remove the server as a windows server, you may want to do this anyway since starting and stopping the server should be faster;
<WAS_HOME>/bin/WASService.exe -remove <nodeName>

The nodename is listed in the service panel in windows, or can be found in the <PROFILE_DIR>/config/cells/<cellName>/nodes/<nodeName>

This should remove the call which is failing.

Frank,

Thank you very much for your time & effort to reply to my post. You guess it right, I'm running WAS on Vista. Changing the user account control did work very well.

Thank you again,

Rajiv
