There was an error updating the admin table. Please check the data for errors and format. com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerException: Cannot update identity column 'PRODUCT_ID'.com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerException: Cannot update identity column 'PRODUCT_ID'.
This appears to be the error. Did you update your database or jdbc driver when you upgraded WebSphere? Because this error doesn't appear to be related to the version of WAS.
This is what i get when i do a test run in admin console
[10/2/12 12:21:13:146 GMT-06:00] 0000003b DSConfigurati I DSRA8203I: Database product name : Microsoft SQL Server

[10/2/12 12:21:13:148 GMT-06:00] 0000003b DSConfigurati I DSRA8025I: Successfully connected to DataSource.
But my Websphere variables is pointed to JDBC Driver 4.0
MICROSOFT_JDBC_DRIVER_PATH C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft JDBC Driver 4.0 for SQL Server\sqljdbc_4.0\enu
MICROSOFT_JDBC_DRIVER_NATIVEPATH C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft JDBC Driver 4.0 for SQL Server\sqljdbc_4.0\enu\auth\x86
So your configuration is not working the way you expected. Go into the administration console and review how you have your data sources configured. (Also review your code to make sure it actually uses the data sources, instead of accessing a JDBC driver which gets installed in your application's WEB-INF/lib directory.)

I solved it by using http://jtds.sourceforge.net/ . This works with both SQL Server and Sybase. The issue i was having is that my application uses both MS SQL Server 2000 and 2008. sqljdbc4.jar is good for later but not former. Using jtds1.2.6.jar and updating driver string resolved.
