Hi all
I have the above problem, ie. cannot view the left frame of the admin console. I tried to uninstall and reinstall wls6.1 but still have the same problem.
Anyone knows how to resolve this. Thanks !

In addition to my previous problem, I discovered the following error in Netscape Java console. It seemed that I cannot run the applet on the left frame of the admin console. I tried to access some sites with applets and they were okay.

Seen this many times before: the standard suggestions to getting that left-side nav applet working are to dump browser cache then shutdown and restart your browser; shutdown and restart your machine; re-re-install WLS. I've had to do all three of those, but one of those always worked for me.
Good Luck.

I have the same problem .
I think it is a bug
It is something to do with the mbean not being invoked.

Looks to me a permission issue in IE. Try changing the IE setiing to lower privacy setting and see if you get the admin console left pane.

Have you installed JRE in your system? For the Left pane console,This is must. You can check, whether the JRE is enabled for this browser by going to 'Tools' option of browser and under that 'sun java console' option.

If you dont see this. Then JRE is not enabled for that Browser. For that
- Go to control panel
- Open the 'java plug-in'
- Go to the 'browser' tab.
- Check, whether your browser has been selected or not.
- If not, enable the browser.

Gopi caught this issue from the exact angle. So in addition to his remarks, I would suggest to download the latest Java plugin from Sun's website. This should resolve the matter.

I've tried what Gopi suggested and I still cant get the console up. I've reduced security settings as well.

There are some postings here re our problem, can some one read them and translate:;jsessionid=886ACF21B8625F5D36134207A4C7A931?post=11753

I've hit this problem and was able to fix it. I got lucky - an office mate had recently hit the same problem and had changed something else recently enough that he knew the likely culprit. I wouldn't have spotted it because I made the same change when I wasn't using WebLogic for a couple of months - all I knew was that when I went back to doing WebLogic stuff mysteriously I didn't have anything in that left-hand frame.

The issue is that you need to have your browser's default JRE be one that the Weblogic console applet supports. In my case (WLS81sp4) the console went away when I installed JDK 1.5; your specifics may vary. Mucking around with that Java plug-in control panel never helped. The solution was to completely uninstall that JDK and JRE. Then I had the console back. Then I reinstalled 1.5 being careful to *not* replace the default browser JRE.

If you try that and are still stuck, I'd suggest bringing up a DOS prompt and doing "java -version" to see what you get. It may be that you've got some extra cleanup to do for some reason to get your O/S back to a point where JDK/JRE 1.4 is your default.
