hi all,
im trying to run ant tasks to check server status, start application etc.,
However I get a 'The Application Server "server1" cannot be reached. It appears to be stopped' eventhough server1 is running.
However running the serverStatus.bat file shows that server1 is running.

Please advice.

heres the code snippet.

<property name="was.home" value="D:\IBM\WebSphere Studio\Application Developer\v5.1.2\runtimes\base_v51" />
<property name="ws.server" value="server1"/>

<path id="ws.classpath">
<fileset dir="${was.home}\lib" includes="**/*.jar"/>

<taskdef name="wsServerStatus" classname="" classpathref="ws.classpath"/>
<target name="status">
<wsServerStatus server="${ws.server}" wasHome="${was.home}"/>

oh here it is without the < >(i guess!) -

property name="was.home" value="D:\IBM\WebSphere Studio\Application Developer\v5.1.2\runtimes\base_v51"
property name="ws.server" value="server1"

path id="ws.classpath"
fileset dir="${was.home}\lib" includes="**/*.jar"

taskdef name="wsServerStatus" classname="" classpathref="ws.classpath"

target name="status"
wsServerStatus server="${ws.server}" wasHome="${was.home}"
I agree. Here's the link:
