How do I change WebSphere to start app

We have two unix servers running WebSphere 3.5.4. One server restarts the default server and web app when it restarts every day. The second one does not restart the same default server / web app. I loaded the second using export / import from the first.
Where is the setting or configuration to change that will start the default server and web app?

Hi
this is curious !!
What websphere does is that when the Admin server stops ( for restarting or what ever ) if the default server (or any other app server process as a matter of fact ) it starts that app server process after restart. On the other hand if the default server is stopped before the admin server stops, when the admin server restarts it will not start this default server process.
what it means is the admin server preserves the state and recovers it when it restarts
atleast thats what its supposed to do. so why dont you check to see if your default server is stopping before the admin server stops ?
i suspect thats where the solution lies
bye

It worked correctly when I started it this morning. I was looking for a switch or setting. I am pleased it was just the order of shutdown. Thanks.
