Hi all,

I am having a problem with the installation of Websphere V5.0 portal test environment in WSAD 5.1.2 (Portal Toolkit I had installed the WSAD first and it went through fine. Then when I installed the Portal ToolKit with Test Environment V5, the portal toolkit was installed fine but the Test Environment failed at around 10% with an exit code 255 mentioned in TkInst.log.

And when i opened the WSAD, it mentioned about the configuration update and the Server can be configured and started and even tells me Open for e-Business. But the http://localhost:9080/wps/portal cannot be found, and the server stops. I have installed as per instructions maintaining the WSAD folder name short, without special characters and also with the PATH variable very short. A complete uninstallation and reinstallation also resulted in the same result.

Has anyone seen this problem and know what the exit code means?


P.S : TKInst.log contents.

We're pleased to have you here with us in the Websphere forum, but there are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.
