Dear All,
I have installed WAS and DB2 and It was working fine. Suddenly, When I rebooted the server and run WAS Administrative console, I get this error "The Admin Client Failed to connect to the Admin Server. Start the local or remote Admin Server service before launching the Admin Client". I have checked the log file adminserver_stderr.log and it shows a long statement which I could not make it.
Also, I have tried to execute the Adminservice from command prompt and getting the following error:
StartServiceCtrlDispatcher failed with error 1063.
Please help me to solve this issue.
Thanks in Advance
Muthuvel C.

The problem lies in the above statement. Have you done anything to the database directly. This is especially with the System files that IBM WAS maintains with Oracle. Are you able to connect to the database via a java application. Try out a simple application that connects to the database and see if it works. If possible can you write the admin.conf file over here.

Dear Rahul,
Thanks for your reply.
We are using DB2 as database backend.
I have tested the DB2 connectivity with Tomcat server and it is working fine.
Please help me to resolve this problem since it is occurring very often.
Thanks and regards

at com.ibm.ejs.cm.pool.JDBC1xConnectionFactory.createConnection(JDBC1xConnectionFactory.java:19)

This thing comes to my mind as to why the idbConnection is failing. Have you done any work on it. Give me some info as to what you have been doing so that it fails. Unless you give me this how can I resolve your problem.

Dear Rahul,
We are developing a web based application using JSP+servlets and DB2 will be our database. We are using WAS as development server. We develop servlets and JSP pages and publish them to WAS server. After publishing, we have to clear the temp directory and restart the Web application (under default server). This is what we are doing during our development cycle. Sometime back, the java.exe took 99% of CPU time and operation was very slow. I thought restarting the server will help and restarted the server, then problem started. I could not restart the WAS Admin server from menu as well as from control panel, it gives error - service specific error 10.
This is occurring very often and when ever this problem occurs I have to reinstall WAS server again to bring it to normal.
Please help me.
Thanks and regards

Hi,
I am facing the same problem. I have installed the DB2 7.2, IBM HTTP Server 1.3.12, WAS 3.5 and upgraded it to 3.5.5 by adding the fixpacks. Then I installed the WPS in the Development mode. It was working fine till here. Then I added SecureWay to use the enabled mode of the WPS. I made the settings using the WebSphere Application Console. (User Registry). After this, when I tried to restart the application server, it gave me this error. If I try to open the console again, it asks me for the LDAP password. If the password is wrong, it says Authentication Fail Error. If I supply right username and the password as I used in the installation of the SecureWay, it gives me this error. ("The Admin Client failed to connect to the Admin Server. Start local or remote Admin Server before launching Admin Client"). I have tried all the option given here in ur communication with
Mr. Rahul.
I will be very greatful to u if u can tell me how u solved this problem. Or some hints to come out of it. I have been trying it since last 3 days.
Thanks and Regards -

"idbconnection" means its trying to connect to instant database that comes with websphere.try changing your admin.config to use DB2 connection instead of idb.
see
