Hey everyone. Having a problem installing the RAD 6.0 Test environment as well as the Portal test environment or even WAS 6.0 Found a few forums and help topics on IBM DeveloperWorks, but none have solved my problem. Upon completion of the install of RAD 6.0, I get a message that "The Integrated Test Environment did not install successfully. You may still be able to use Rational Application Developer".
Upon searching the install logs, i find a few messages that "file can not be found" or "path can not be found". Looking at the install directory, the runtimes\base_v6 directory was never created.
Has anyone run into this before? Any recommended steps on fixing the problem (Aside from purchasing WebLogic )
Yes I have, multiple times. When this happens you need to call the WAS6 install program manually. Search the cds for a WAS installer, its listed as an EXE file in one of the sub-folders. Can't remember which folder though, sorry!
After completing these steps, there's still no <installDir>/runtimes/base_v6 folder. It did however install an instance of WAS 6.0 to a different directory. Went to window > preferences > server > Installed Runtimes and configured WAS 6.0 Server to point to that installation directory. When I try to start the server, It seems like it begins to start and never does anything else. Just Starting... in the server view. Eventually it fails. Still plugging away at this, any pointers?
Oh, I forgot to mention earlier, turn off all virusscan software and disconnect the computer from the network. In certain cases with Antivirus software and/or networked-administered Antivirus software, WAS installation will fail.

Ah I never turned the Virus Scan software off
Funny though, i did actually get the installation to work - my issue was that i was using a corrupted profile. I switched to the default profile that i had originally created and success.
I'm still not a fan of the RAD though We need to get Senior Management to go to one of the BEA user's groups. WebLogic is so much more friendly and Developers love it.
I have a feeling my installation is bad though, so on mondy I'm going to reinstall. Thanks for the help Scott, It was a bigger jump from WSAD 5.1.2 to RAD 6.0 than I had expected.

Make sure you install all fixes for both RAD and integrated WebSphere. I had a lot of trouble with pristine 6.0 versions - I don't remember what the latest version of RAD is, but I updated my WebSphere to 184.108.40.206 yesterday. While it didn't fix the specific problem that triggered me to update WebSphere, I hope it fixed others that I'd have in the future

I disconnected from the network, and disabled the antivirus. It worked.
I didnt even need to install a separate was 6 server. The test was 6 trial server that goes with the rad download was installed.
I gave up on this few weeks ago and returned to wsad. Now I am back; as I need RAD's code coverage.
Just another hint if your portal environment fails. Quite often, the test environment chokes on the "Hot Method Replace" option. If you have trouble with the portal test environment, often disabling this feature will get it to work.
