Hi all,
I have a question about how do I deploy ejb on WAS 5.1 from WSAD 5.1.
Following are the steps I followed:
1. Install WAS 5.1
2. Installed WSAD 5.1
3. I have developed a session ejb in WSAD.
4. I have configured a new server under servers in WSAD for my WAS app server.
5. I added my EJB project in the server.
6. When I try to run the server i get following error message:
Connection failed on host localhost.
IWAT0016E The agent controller is not available on host localhost.
Make sure that:
* the Agent Controller is installed.
* the Agent Controller is configured to communicate with your machine.
* you have the correct host name and port number for the Agent Controller.
Anybody has any idea about this ? how do I install Agent Controller on top of what I have right now.
Thanks in advance...

I take it you are using the Remote Server or Server Attach funtion to deploy to or debug on a remote server. The IBM Controller Agent is a component needed to contact remote servers for deploying, remote debugging, and remote JVM profiling.
The Agent Controller is a seperate install that is available on the WSAD CD or install. It should be an option if you used the LaunchPad window.

On my machine in C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere Studio\install.pdf chapter 4 covers installation of the agent controller.
I agree. Here's the link:
