IBM WebSphere - Get server status using the serverStatus command

Updated:   |  IBM WebSphere articles

There are a number of similar scripts that can be used to start, stop and check the status of WebSphere servers.

 

The serverStatus.sh (Linux) or serverStatus.bat (Windows) script can be used to get the status of your various WebSphere servers, such as your application servers, deployment managers, nodes, et cetera. For example, here is how you would get the status of all of your WebSphere servers using serverStatus.sh on Linux.

AVOID TROUBLE

If you are prompted for a username and password, refer to username password and the soap.client.props sas.client.props ipc.client.props files.

${WAS_INSTALL_ROOT}/bin/serverStatus.sh -all

 

And here is how you would get the status of a specific server using serverStatus.bat on Windows.

${WAS_INSTALL_ROOT}\profiles\your_profile\bin\serverStatus.bat server_name

 

The serverStatus script without any additional command line options or flags will return the server status for the application servers, deployment managers, nodes in the default profile. manageprofiles.sh -listProfiles (Linux) or manageprofiles.bat -listProfiles (Windows) can be used to list the profiles.

~]# ${WAS_INSTALL_ROOT}/bin/manageprofiles.sh -listProfiles
[AppSrv01, AppSrv02]

 

manageprofiles.sh -getDefaultName (Linux) or manageprofiles.bat -getDefaultName (Windows) can be used to list the default profile.

~]# ${WAS_INSTALL_ROOT}/bin/manageprofiles.sh -getDefaultName
AppSrv01

 

If you have two (or more) profiles, the -profileName option can be used to return the server status for the application servers, deployment managers, nodes in the profile.

${WAS_INSTALL_ROOT}/bin/serverStatus.sh -profileName AppSrv01 -all

 

Or, you can use the serverStatus script in the profile directory.

${WAS_INSTALL_ROOT}/profiles/your_profile/bin/serverStatus.sh -all

 

Something like this should be returned if the server is stopped.

ADMU0116I: Tool information is being logged in file
           /opt/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/your_profile/logs/serverStatus.log
ADMU0128I: Starting tool with the your_profile profile
ADMU0503I: Retrieving server status for all servers
ADMU0505I: Servers found in configuration:
ADMU0506I: Server name: dmgr
ADMU0509I: The Deployment Manager "dmgr" cannot be reached. It appears to be
           stopped.

 

Or something like this if the server is started.

ADMU0116I: Tool information is being logged in file
           /opt/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/your_profile/logs/serverStatus.log
ADMU0128I: Starting tool with the your_profile profile
ADMU0503I: Retrieving server status for all servers
ADMU0505I: Servers found in configuration:
ADMU0506I: Server name: dmgr
ADMU0508I: The Deployment Manager "dmgr" is STARTED.

 

If some issue occurs, there may be log files at ${WAS_INSTALL_ROOT}/configuration/ or ${WAS_INSTALL_ROOT}/profiles/your_profile/configuration/ that may have additional debugging details.

~]$ ls -l ${WAS_INSTALL_ROOT}/profiles/your_profile/configuration/
-rw-rw-r-- 1 john.doe  wasadmins 4727 Jan 27 03:15 1674810957892.log
-rw-rw-r-- 1 john.doe  wasadmins 4727 Jan 27 08:11 1674828717204.log
-rw-rw-r-- 1 john.doe  wasadmins 4727 Jan 28 03:00 1674896402539.log

drwxrwsr-x 2 john.doe  wasadmins 4096 Jul 21  2022 org.eclipse.update

 

For example, once we had an issue where the serverStatus script was not producing any output, and the log showed this was due to a permissions issue.

~]$ cat /opt/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/your_profile/configuration/1674897002316.log
!MESSAGE Error reading configuration: /opt/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/your_profile/configuration/org.eclipse.osgi/.manager/.fileTableLock (Permission denied)
