I just installed the Websphere Application Server - Community edition V7 and everthing was fine during installation. Just after the installation First Step screen appeared and every functioning was perfect.

But later I tried to start the server from the WebSphere directory it failed to start. Also websphere service get stopped automatically.

But when I tried to start the server by running the startup batch file as administrator from the websphere directory server started and worked fine.

To clarify, there is no Community Edition v7. So do you mean CE v3 or maybe WebSphere Express?… – dbreaux Oct 31 '11 at 13:59
