Step for this task

Set the ownership of the profile or deployment manager directory to be the same as the user under which WAS is to run. As a root user, run the following commands:

cd $WASROOT/profiles/  
chown -R wasadmin dmgr/  
chgrp -R wasndgrp dmgr/  
chmod -R 755 dmgr/  
...  
cd $WASROOT/profiles/dmgr/bin  
./startManager.sh
where the profile name is dmgr run as a user in wasadmin with the primary group wasndgrp.
