    Please help me in resolving this issue, am out of ideas now.

    Thanks so much

  2. Re: Exception during start-up of WebSphere Portal Server-

    Is this Portal clustered? If so, did you check-out/check-in when updating wmmWASAdmin.xml? Likewise, is security.xml on this server synchronized with the other cluster members?

    Did you change the user name and/or password for an administrative user recently? If so, did you follow the InfoCenter's instructions?:

    http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infoce...sec_pswds.html

    This error might also be caused by some odd manual change to one of the WMM configuration files and/or security.xml. You might try disabling global security then reenabling it with the Portal configuration tasks to correctly update these files.
