I have applications that were left in installedApps directory, but not recognized by the admin console. Is there any way I can regenerate ear file from installedApps directory?

The obvious question is, where is the original .ear file? Is it still in the installableApps directory? What version of WAS are you using? Were these apps at one point installed and running and recognized by the admin console? More info please.

They are not in inatallableApps directory. It is WAS 5.0.1. They are in installedApps directory but not in one single file and they were recognized by Admin console, but not any more.

did you reinstall them at some point onto a different server instance other than server1? If so, the admin console would display the unavailable icon for these applications. What you can do, just to make sure they are installed in the configuration is go to WEBSPHERE_HOME/bin and type in wsadmin. At the wsadmin prompt type in $AdminApp list to see a list of apps in the configuration. If the apps in question are not there, you will have to recreate those .ear files and reinstall. At this point, that may be the most viable alternative anyway. Generally speaking, I think you will be much happier if you install Network Deployment to manage your base nodes. The admin console that comes with base can cause many headaches.
