WASX7070E: The configuration service is not available.


I was trying to register portlet services on WAS console using jython script.
Script worked well in my local portal environement and but in some of the env I was getting following exception
WASX7070E: The configuration service is not available.

Just wanted to share the solution that I found and hope it may help and would save time...

When you are running a script which takes one of the argument as SOAP_CONNECTOR_ADDRESS, you may find this kind of error..(WASX7070E:....)

First, to know SOAP_CONNECTOR_ADDRESS value, please Login to WAS Console

click on Servers, then
Server Types, then
WebSphere application servers, then
WebSphere_Portal, then
expand the port section ( right bottom side under Communications heading)
look for the port value of SOAP_CONNECTOR_ADDRESS. 

Now, take look at  the \AppServer\profiles\AppSrv01\properties\wsadmin.properties and look for value for com.ibm.ws.scripting.port

Next, open WAS console and navigate to ports as shown below
Application servers > server1 > Ports

Verify that, SOAP_CONNECTOR_ADDRESS port number should be set to com.ibm.ws.scripting.port in wsadmin.properties.
IF NOT, try running your command with the com.ibm.ws.scripting.port value specified in wsadmin.properties file.
