Hi, I am not able to start the WebSphere admin server. When i checked the log files, there is a Communication Exception logged - "Check misspelled hostname or hostname case for admin server."
Please let me know which file needs to be modified.
Thanks for ur help.

I am using WebSphere in AIX platform.
When I start the startupServer.sh, and then check the log file, it says
"Port XXX is already in use. Specify another port".
I changed the port in admin.config to a different one say YYY and after starting the server, I get a error message as
"Port YYY already in use"
Please let me know what is to be done
Thanks

Hi,
First all your name does not match with Java ranch naming policy.
secondly
2.a) issue command netstat -a and see which all ports r getting used.If u r logging as root then ports lower than 1024 is also avaiable,otherwise as non-root login these ports are not avaiable.
and look in trace file for exact error.
and If u have logged have in non-root,then make sure you have all the rights to start WAS as non-root user
and let us what trace files says ..?
