I'm not sure what to tell you Sean, you'll probably have to call

You didn't say what version of WAS you were on, but besides the WAS
group PTF you will also (at a minimum) need:

SF99530  CUMULATIVE PTF PACKAGE          Current Level: 5298
SF99529  GROUP HIPER                     Current Level:   70
SF99503  DB2 UDB FOR ISERIES             Current Level:    8
SF99269  JAVA                            Current Level:    9

SF99099  IBM HTTP SERVER FOR ISERIES     Current Level:    7

And possibly:
SF99295  WEBSPHERE MQ FOR ISERIES        Current Level:    7 
SF99173  IBM BUSINESS SOLUTIONS          Current Level:    3

Some or all of these may have come with your WebsFear group PTF, but
they don't always get the current levels.

subject: Re: V5R3 Websphere application server not showing in admin

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.
