I'm used to the tabs. I've checked All Servers and Application Servers.
There is a dropdown to list the different servers on the Application
Servers tab, but the only entry (besides Select One) is All Servers.
I'm using MSIE because I've had problems with the IBM created apps and
Firefox. Not that it should matter, but I always use
https://myserver:2010/HTTPAdmin because I like to encrypt everything.
The box is an 810 with 4GB of RAM, and I'm basically the only user doing
anything on it, so there isn't much delay for anything loading. I
didn't mention explicitly, but our app didn't work at all after the V5R3
upgrade until I found the WAS group to apply. Today is the first day
the app crashed (I've been told it was running today then stopped) even
though it hasn't been on the admin page since the upgrade 3 weeks ago.

Is it possibly under a different tab? At V5R3 you should find multiple
tabs under the "manage" tab. (at
http://yourservername.com:2001/HTTPAdmin ) You should see "All
Servers", "HTTP Servers", "Application Servers" and "ASF Tomcat
Servers." Under "All Servers" you should see more tabs, with "HTTP
Servers", Application Servers" and "ASF Tomcat Servers" again.
If you are on the "HTTP Servers" tab you can't see the WAS Servers, and
if you are on the "Application Servers" tab you can't see the HTTP
If you are on a smaller box these may take some time to load. Make sure
that your ADMIN jobs aren't thrashing in the system pool. Also, I think
you need to have pop-ups enabled on your browser and I'm pretty sure
that only IE and Firefox are supported. (Maybe only IE.)
Let me know if this helps...

subject: V5R3 Websphere application server not showing in admin
I know very little about WAS, even though I configured it on our server.
(I was following vendor directions.) I set everything up on V5R2 then
recently upgraded to V5R3. After putting on the latest group PTFs,
everything was working fine. I noticed, though, that the WAS instance
no longer shows on the HTTP admin page. I see the HTTP server instance
there but not the WAS one.
Today it is not working, so I was going to follow the Windows method and
stop/start the service to see if it would fix itself. I can open a PMR
if no-one knows the answer off the top of their heads, and I might be
able to stop/start from a command line. I was a bit curious as to where
the HTTP admin server got the list of application servers to see if it
were just corrupted somehow.
