Hello Everyone,
I m trying to install WAS 5.1 and I keep getting this error that my Java_Home is not set .... On this machine I already have an instance of weblogic and JBoss running .....
I even tried using this help after reading the following message
"A suitable JVM could not be found. Please run the program again using the option -is:javahome <JAVA HOME DIR>"

Reading the above message I have tried excuting the following

Install.exe -is:javahome C:\j2sdk1.4.2_02\jre

I have tried numerous combitions C:\j2sdk1.4.2_02\bin , C:\j2sdk1.4.2_02 ,
even tried using jdk131 ..... But no luck ...
Can any one help .....

Cheers,

It looks like you are trying to install on a Windows machine. You can set the JAVA_HOME variable in System Properties under the advanced tab in Environment Variables. Just add JAVA_HOME and point it to the JRE. /websphere/appserver/java for example.

Hope this helps.

Hi ,
Thanks for your reply.... I have downloaded the WAS 5.1 from the IBM site got 2 bundle of zip files one for WAS and other for HTTP server.
I have set the Java_HOME but some how it is validating the JRE Version with IBM's JRE 1.4 Version . I feel its validating the IBM JRE with that of Sun's installed on my machine ......
Anyways I got a CD of 4.1 and Vola some how it finds what all it needs with the same system set up. I feel something is fishy . Could you throw some ligth WHY it worked with the CD installation and when I was trying to do it with the ZIP files it did not :??? ....

Thanks for your time and effort

With regards,
Sumeet

- while installing WAS 5.1 on a fresh installation of suse linux 9.3 i would constantly get
"A suitable JVM could not be found"
- then while installing the fp1 and fp6 i would constantly get segmentation fault

i solved both problems by first typing the following two lines as root
export LANG=$LC_CTYPE
ulimit �s 8196

and ended up creating a .bashrc file in the roots home directory
and adding the two lines to it

i found the tip at this site:

hope this helps someone
