IBM WebSphere - Resolve "ADMS0104I The system is unable to invoke a synchronization request on node"

This error appears in a deployment manager (dmgr) SystemOut.log after attempting to synchronize a node. One thing that can cause this problem is that the administrative username on the dmgr or the application server that contain the node was changed. As a quick fix, you can synchronize the node and include the username and password in the sync node commands.

You will run thess commands from the server that contains the node that you want to sync with the deployment manager. Before issuing the / syncNode.bat command, you will need to issue the / stopNode.bat command.

~]# was_home/AppServer/profiles/your_profile/bin/ -user your_username -password your_password


Once the node has been stopped, you can then issue the command. In this example, "" is the hostname of the deployment manager, and 8879 is the SOAP port of the deployment manager.

~]# was_home/AppServer/profiles/your_profile/bin/ 8879 -user your_username -password your_password


After the node has been sycned, start the node.

~]# was_home/AppServer/profiles/your_profile/bin/


You should then be able to again sync the node in the WebSphere admin console, and a success message should be displayed.
