Hi ...
when i try to install a perfectly made .ear file from websphere admin console the application doesnt get installed and i get the following error

Like to the know the reason at the earliest

APPW0006E Error occurred during the saving action of the application wizard. Refer to the logs for more information.
APPW0004E Application install or modify bindings action for the chosen application failed.

Error says to check the log files but the log files contain nothing....

The application is not appearing in the admin console....

I already had this application deployed in the server but I need to change something so I uninstall this application and by the time I want to install again, I got the problem that I told yo before.

SO: Windows 2000
WAS : 4.0.7

Thanks in advance

I Suppose there was some problem which you might have not noticed while uninstalling the application.

If this is a test environment or development environment, and if you are ready to forgo all the configurations that you had made earlier, there is a simple way to get along, just recreate the admin database, afresh, and start with creating of resources and install the application.

in bin/admin.config, there is a flag which indicates to recreate the admin database, this option can be used and recreate the database.

If this is a production environment or you have other applications installed which you dont want to loose, then it is better you analyse what the problem is.

Hope this helps solve your problem.
