Hi All: I am working with WAS 401. I am facing problems when stopping the server. It is not shutting down cleanly, as a result, am not able to restart it again. (The work around is to restart the pc, which is a pain...) The stack trace is below. Can any one help, how to get rid of this problem? NOTE : From Websphere/appserver/bin folder, am executing stopServer.bat for stopping the server... TIA Shakthi.
