On a fresh install of IBM i 7.2, with a regular IPL, the qhttpsvr subsystem is started and subsequently the admin-instance, which listens on TCP Port 2001. This port immediately redirects to Port 2004 on the same machine. The Browser delivers an error.
netstat *cnn shows that there's no open port 2004.
Short question: What am I missing on my system so Port 2004 is closed?
In QUSRSYS/QATMHINSTC are just two members APACHEDFT and IWADFT. Looking into the httpd.conf in IFS they point to they listen on port 80 and 2020. So I started these instanced for testing.
The service on port 2020 is restricted to /webaccess and gives error 500 when trying to access that one. There are no corresponding entries in the error log but webaccess-plugin.log shows these entries:
ws_common: websphereGetStream: Failed to connect to app server on host 'localhost', OS err=3425 ws_common: websphereExecute: Failed to create the stream ws_common: websphereHandleRequest: Failed to execute the transaction to 'webaccess 1'on host 'localhost'; will try another one ws_common: websphereWriteRequestReadResponse: Failed to find an app server to handle this request ESI: getResponse: failed to get response: rc = 2 ws_common: websphereHandleRequest: Failed to handle request
GO LICPGM menu, option 10 and 11 to list installed components and list installable components, I can see that there's no IBM Dev Kit for Java installed, as well as no flavor of available Java SE. All IBM I Access components are installed, though.
Doing some research, I found a clue that 2004 is called the ADMIN2-Instance but I can't find a reference to it in QUSRSYS/QATMHINSTC.
Research also pointed me to a path buried deep within the IFS which shows that basically at least some stuff for admin2 is installed. The log file within there is empty.
wrkobj qlwi* *all shows a bunch of objects, also a qlwiadm program object. So I think, basic stuff is installed.
I suspect that I've missed to install certain components. But which? Can't find a reference to anything websphere'ish in the installable licpgm list.
Second, maybe I'm facing two distinct problems?
