5.0.2 dcc stopServer script hanging at Username prompt (Win2012R2)

Heather Linsk (1401550) | asked Jul 16 '15, 11:14 a.m.
 I have the following environment:
Windows 2012R2 - SQL Server 2012
RHEL 6.6 - jts/WAS
RHEL 6.6 - ccm/WAS
Windows 2012R2 - dcc/WAS

When I try to use the stopServer script on the dcc WAS - I get the following and it just sits there.  Any ideas?

D:\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\profiles\AppSrv01\bin>stopServer.bat server1
ADMU0116I: Tool information is being logged in file
ADMU7702I: Because server1 is registered to run as a Windows Service, the
           request to stop this server will be completed by stopping the
           associated Windows Service.
ADMU0116I: Tool information is being logged in file
ADMU0128I: Starting tool with the AppSrv01 profile
ADMU3100I: Reading configuration for server: server1
Realm/Cell Name: <default>

It appears that you forgot to add the username and password necessary for stopping the WAS service, so it is waiting forever for the username/password (as there is no interactive GUI for you to enter them). You need to remove the WAS service and add it back again with the necessary "-stopArgs" paremeter. Take a look at the last example in the below document.

Once a Websphere server instance is configured to run as a service, the stop script can not be used.

 When I stop the service, it also hangs. I end up having to go the task manager and kill the processes.

I would check the logs of the dcc and other components. Maybe they provide more information?
