  1. WAS 5.0.2 on SLES 9 on IBM iSeries - should this work?

    Hi folks

    I have SLES 9 installed on an IBM iSeries partition and I'm trying
    to get WAS 5.0.2 (base) running. The requirements for 5.0.2 list SLES 8
    - am I assuming too much to expect it to work on SLES 9? I'm following the
    WebSphere for Linux on iSeries: Implementation Guide Redbook, but as that
    came out over a year before SLES 9, it doesn't cover troubleshooting
    issues for it

    LaunchPad.sh refused to run until I'd set LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5
    (gleaned from posts to this group), but then the install ran through to
    completion. There was one warning/error which didn't stop the install,
    but it may be related to subsequent problems.

    From the installation /opt/WebSphere/AppServer/logs/log.txt:
    --------------------------------------------8<----------------------------------

    ---------------------------------------8<---------------------------------------
    which
    reported the install complete a dozen lines further down.

    Is this error critical, and should I be able to repair it?

    When I then run /opt/WebSphere/AppServer/bin/startServer.sh server1 to
    start the server it gets as far as (in startServer.log):

    -------------------------------------->8-------------------------------------

    SystemOut.log gets as far as JMSEmbeddedPr A MSGS0052I: Starting the Broker
    and native_stderr.log just lists:

    JVMXM004: JVM is performing abort shutdown sequence
    JVMDG217: Dump Handler is Processing a Signal - Please Wait.
    JVMDG303: JVM Requesting Java core file
    -------------------------------------->8-------------------------------------

    but I can't find any javacore files as a result. /tmp/javacore_locations
    lists entries like /opt/WebSphere/AppServer/javacore2467.1109775043.txt
    matching the error time, but the file doesn't appear to be produced.

    The reason I'm trying with WAS 5.0.2 is that's the version we have running
    natively on OS/400, and we're trying to do some comparisons.

    If anyone has any pointers or suggestions, please let me know

    Regards, Martin

    Yes, you are. 5.0.2 is not supported on SLES 9:

    http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview...=utf-8&lang=en

    You should move to 5.1.1 which is supported on SLES 9 on iSeries:

    Thanks for that. I had installed the SLES 8 compatibility libraries, but
    it's obviously not enough.

    I'll get that requested - cheers.
