Error using the RAM setup application on a WebSphere cluster


Revathi Subramanian (369) | asked May 11 '10, 10:21 p.m.
I installed the RAM setup application to a WebSphere NS 6.1.0.29 cluster using the deployClusterSetup.py script. Following this, I started up the setup application from the admin console. Then I tried to access the RAM setup application. The Introduction page does not show. In its place is a stack trace indicating that some prerequisites have not been installed. Except I am not sure what.

what version of RAM are you running,

from the exception log , it appears that you are running RAM 7.2 base version on WAS 6.1.0.29 . There is a known problem with RAM 7.2 Setup on running it on any WAS version higher than the supported version for 7.2 base(which is 6.1.0.27), since you are on 29, its recommended that you upgrade to 7202

7202 is available externally at

Thanks. Moving to RAM 7202 did help with that problem
