I cannot get connection to WAS 6 going using security.

Trying to follow this support ticket 1508391 (, but do not understand a couple things.

1. Installed a WebSphere V6 thin application client, NOT
pluggable client

Where is thin client?  On install CD?

2. Modified startup.cmd und shutdown.cmd (see examples
attached), most important that one lists the required jars
in the classpath

I don't see examples attached.

3. Important that the provided JRE is used, this way it
is ensured that the correct file is taken
(defines security providers for ssl communication). This is
ensured by "sourcing" the setupClient.bat file, which sets
the WebSphere environment.

I tried to use IBM JRE and get this:
The java class could not be loaded. java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: org/jmanage/webui/Startup (Unsupported major
.minor version 49.0)

It actually starts up ok with a 1.5 JDK.  But I constantly get: 

Apr 21, 2008 11:45:49 AM getServerConnection
INFO: Failed to connect. error=Invalid Implementation Key,
Apr 21, 2008 11:45:49 AM org.jmanage.monitoring.downtime.ApplicationHeartBeatThread isOpen
INFO: Application is down: logon
Apr 21, 2008 11:45:59 AM getServerConnection

4. In addition one needs to provided a valid
soap.client.props file which is referred by setupClient.bat
resp. startup.cmd. The property must be set. Userid,
password and hostname and soap port are coming from jmanage,
so need not to be set in the properties file.

I think I can figure this one out, but where does it go?
