Re-Install Admin Console (isclite) in WebSphere Application Server

Posted by eichelgartenweg on 8:06 AM with No comments
If the admin console (isclite) is broken or was accidentally uninstalled, you can re-deployment (reinstall) the console-application by executing the jython script deployConsole.py

1. First do a clean removal of the old admin-console deployment:
"System-folder"/bin/wsadmin.sh -lang jython -f deployConsole.py remove
2. After that reinstall the administrative console (isclite):
"System-folder"/bin/wsadmin.sh -lang jython -f deployConsole.py install
3. Double check the application mapping. Take a look at:
/"profile-root"/config/cells/"cell name"/nodes/"node name"/applications/isclite.ear/deployments/isclite/deployment.xml
3.1 And check if the <deploymenttargets>-Tag points to the correct server.

4. Take a look at
/"profile root"/config/cells/"cell name"/nodes/"node name"/serverindex.xml
4.1. Check if the <deployedapplications>-Tag for the application isclite  is mapped to the correct server (server1 in base version of WebSphere).

Now the administrative console should work again.
