Description of problem:
I have been struggling with installing WAS 5.0 on Redhat Linux AS3.0
for a week. I read articles about incompatibility between IBM JDK
1.3.1 SR5 and Redhat AS3.0 in Redhat Bugzila, and I was experiencing
the same problem when I tried to install WAS 5.0 on AS 3.0.
I downloaded IBM JDK 1.6.1 SR6 from IBM website and I thought I
succeed in installing WAS 5.0 on AS3.0. Installation steps looks
fine and I see the first step applet. However, once I get out of the
first step applet, I can't launch any WAS excution file.
For example, all files under /opt/Websphere/AppServer/bin dont work
except serupCmdLine.sh file. The Strangist part is that all these
shell scripts just literally hang when I run those. For instance,
if I excute versionInfo.sh script, I see a java thread on "top"
command console and its cpu usage is around 50% and never decrease.
I dont see any error message or any warning message from either the
console which I launch the script or log files. It seems to me that
the java thread just hangs and does something abviously, but since
I dont see any error or exception message from the thread, I have
no idea what's going on. All other scripts are same. I tried to
install WAS fix pack 2 cause I thought that maybe this was because
some WAS 5.0 containers are not stable, but I couldn't even launch
updateWizard.sh file in update package which I downloaded seperately
from IBM website. I get the same reaction from updateWizard.sh, which
is no reaction. I checked IBM JDK and java seems fine. This is such
a headache because I dont see any error message.
I assumed that WAS 5.0 may not work on AS3.0, but what about
updateInstaller? This is seperate package and if there is something
wrong, at least I should get any message even if I dont understand
messages. Anyone secceed in installing WAS5.0 on AS3.0?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.4.21-4.ELsmp ; J2RE 1.3.1 IBM build cxia32131-20031021
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Installed IBM JDK 1.3.1 SR6
2.Installed WAS 5.0
3.At the end of the installation, I saw the first step applet.
4.Closed the first step applet.
5.Relaunch firstStep.sh or any files in ../bin or updateWizard.sh
Actual Results: Jave thread just hangs. No error message, nothing
By checking "top", I see a jave thread consumes about 50% of cpu usage
constantly which never decrease until I kill the process.
I waited for more than 30 minutes and nothing happens unless I killed
Expected Results: I should see an appropriate applet. At least, I
should see any error message if something is wrong.
There is a known problem with WebSphere 5.0 and RHEL3 which has been
reported as bz #101603. This problem has been resolved with WebSphere
5.1; and Red Hat / IBM are investigating possible solutions for
