Hi Folks,
Need your help....
I am using WAS 5.1 trial version for developing a small proto project.
I am looking to automate the installation of the ear to the server. I have read in these forums that in 5.1 you do this using wsadmin tool(instead of seappinstall in 4.x). When I launch wsadmin from c:\websphere\appserver\bin, I get this error:

The trace from wsadmin.traceout looks like:

Pls help some one.....

First of all, there must be a server running somewhere for WSAdmin to connect to. In a WebSphere ND environment, that's usually the deployment manager, but in a WAS Base environment, then it's the application server.

What you need to do is look in the System.log of that server and find what port the SOAP connector is running on. Then start WSAdmin using the -host and -port options to connect directly to that port.

Thanks Kyle. It works fine. Actually the port was a wrong one bad....
One more thing - after this runs successfully, am getting the message:

But it did not install the application in the directory I mentioned during the interactive install...

Do I have to manually copy this .ear and paste it?
