Hello All,

I am very new to WSAD 5.1. Can anybody tell me how to launch admin tool from WSAD 5.1? Or on which port the admin service is listened and then what is the full URL for that? I was able to launch admin application in WebSphere App. Server 6.0 by applying the port number 9060. But I don't know how to do that from WSAD 5.1.

https://localhost:9043/admin/logon.jsp is the URL our test servers admin console listens to.

You could check out the port and even change it in the server configurations editor

We can also launch the admin console by right clicking-> run admin console from the server configurations view

Hi Raj,

I am not getting that. BTW do I need to install WebSphere App. Server 5.1 explicitely? I doubt on that.

You need to install some version of WebSphere and start the server. After installation, you can launch the server via WSAD.

The port number varies depending on what you used during installation. Open the Server view in WAS and Double click on the server. It should list some of the major settings such as the admin port.

Im confused, when you say "do I need to install the server?"

what else would the admin console be working on?

the adminconsole IS an application that RUNS on the server.

I'm thinking there's some confusion here between WSAD and WAS (or RAD and WAS if you use the updated acronyms). Hopefully, he has installed WAS with WSAD and not without.

Isn't one of those settings a checkbox that specifies whether the admin server should run or not? I recall trying to track this down a few weeks ago and I found the answer then, but my WSAD is at work and I can't check it for about 12 hours.

Perhaps in WSAD but I believe the admin console *always* runs in RAD, else there's no way to access the server. WSAD5 still had a basic server admin console for the IDE but RAD6 threw that out in favor of a more loosely coupled server/IDE relationship. Could be wrong though.

In WSAD 5.1: start the server, then double-click it. (You'll find it in the Servers or Debug perspectives.) That opens a "Websphere Server Configuration" editor. Click on the Configuration tab and there's a checkbox to enable the administration console. The default port is 9090 but you can change that on the Ports tab.

Save that editor and restart the server. You can then administer it at http://localhost:9090/admin.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
