After deploying websphere to an AIX machine the probe fails to start.

We see max restarts in the probe's log.

This was after using the websphere setup wizard.

Looking at .log file in the websphere directory we see the following:

java class is not found:  com/nimsoft/nimbus/probe/application/extractbase/Bootstrap

AIX: 7

The java classpath may be wrong.

Edit the


Change the CLASSPATH variable to point to where the websphere.jar file is located.

For example CLASSPATH=jar/websphere.jar

Change the last line to point to where java is installed.

For example: $NIM_ROOT/$NIM_JRE_HOME/bin/java
