Hi,

I am always having the problem when switch between the profiles,the person who was working on the project created so many profiles , they all are running as a windows
services. I decided to delete all the services and used websphere delete profile command from command prompt.

the prompt says that it deleted the profiles but i still see some of the them are still there in the services windows. how delete these from the windows services. What causes it to not delete form the windows services.

Quick help is greatly appreciated.

I think that setting any profile other than the default profile as a windows service is something that needs to be done manually. I'm guessing someone manually added them as Windows Services, and thus, they need to be deleted manually. Just a hunch.

Nan,
The command : bin/WASService.exe can be used to remove the windows service.





As part of the delete of the profile, the service should have been removed. If you look in the delete log (<WAS_INSTALL>\logs\manageprofiles\<profileName>_delete.log) for the profile, locate the line:



for more information about the reason the service failed to be removed.
