Could you check the tracefile/log file for the app server to check if there are any further errors reported?
- The log files are generally in <appserverroot>/logs
Also, have you tried to open a command window and try invoking startserver.bat from there???

However I have changed the bootstrap port in server-cfg.xml to be 901.. Still I doono why it gives this error?

I didn't check fully but from your error message, it says some other application server or process is running on port 900. If no other server than start the admin console to see if the server is running already.

As it suggests.. there are 3 possibilities
-1. User does not have enought privileges
-2. Port No. confict.
-3. admin server already running
I presume 1. is not a problem.
Reg. 2, i am not sure server-cfg.xml handles the port setting... i thought it was something like admin-cfg.xml.. but never mind... it is attempting to start on 900. thats waht we have to consider.
check with netstat what program is running. Just open a command window(dos) and run netstat.
3. Try to start the admin console. If it opens, it means the admin server is already running. it could have been started as a service.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
