Hello all, I'm trying to set up WAS v3.5 Standard Edition on an AS/400. It was already installed as part of OS400 v4r5 so I haven't loaded anything myself. My first problem is I can't find the CD with the Administerative Console. Does anyone know which CD it comes on? My second question is how the blazes do I start WAS? I've read the IBM web based installation docs. It tells me to start subsystem QEJB/QEJBSBS. However there is no QEJB library on my AS/400. Have I missed something? I can't believe how painful this is. Hopefully someone out there can help...
Long time since I worked on OS/400(last time is V4R4), so I am not that updated yet. But first of all, you can access www.redbooks.ibm.com find bunch of redbooks on WAS on iSeries(OS/400). Second, I think WAS3.5 SE is managed via browser? Or you can download the adminclient dynamically after your websphere is started? You mean you cannot find the QEJB library on OS/400? You may look them up under "/" filesystem. I don't think they are part of the QSYS file system. You can verify your installation with wrklicpgm? Hope it helps a little bit, btw my first EJB product experience is Tangeh on OS/400(before it is acquired by BEA) 2-3 years ago...

Hi Lee, First of all u cannot of course view the admin console on the as400 terminal. u have to install the admin console on an NT machine and mention the was on the as 400 as a repository Remember to have the same version of the app server and fixpack on the NT machine.
This is going to sound really dumb and I fully accept any slaps in the head anyone wants to give me. It turns out that only Websphere version 1 is installed on the AS/400 so no wonder it wouldn't start. Sorry to have wasted your time. I read that Websphere Standard Edition 3.5 was a free license program option on v4r5. I didn't realise it had to be ordered separately. Is this option really free? I can't believe IBM just gives things like this away. Has anyone else got 3.5 this way? Cheers, Lee.

Standard Edition is just a Servlet/JSP engine, so it could be free. Enjoy it!
