Hello james
To my knowledge there can be two things which cause this error.
1> if you have stopped the adminserver and starting it again you will get this error.
Solution for above: kill the java.exe processes running on the server.
2> in the admin.config file there might be some blank lines at the end of the text ..
solution: delete all the blank line in the file and try starting again.

Hi James,
If the database specified for WebSphere Application Server to use as its
repository has not been created, you will see a Specific error 10 message.
To ensure that the WAS40 database exists, do the following (for DB2):
1. Start the Control Center dialog. Open it by selecting Start > Programs > IBM
DB2 > Control Center.
2. In the DB2 Control Center, expand the tree under Systems. Your DB2
databases are listed under Databases. Examine the list to see if WAS40 is in
Alternatively, use the following command:
$db2 list db directory
If the DB2 database WAS40 has not been created, do the following:
1. From the Start menu, select Programs > IBM DB2 > Command Line
3. Wait a minute to allow time for DB2 to create the database.
5. Type quit to leave the CLP, and then exit to finish the command prompt.
6. Restart the machine making sure that the following parameters are still set in
the admin.config file: =true
install.initial.config =true
Perform the same tests if you are using Oracle.
