You’ve started the service, right?
yes, i've tried to start the service. it doesn't start.
Is there an error in the event log?
There should be a blappserv.exe – can you run that from the commandline ?
What steps have you done for the upgrade?
Did you run the postmigration.bat?
That should only be needed for a 7.6 upgrade.
Didn't find anything in the event logs.
Where should the blappserv.exe be? I could only find blappserv.bat in the ...NSH\br folder
I followed the wiki steps...upgraded appserver > console > DB > RSCD
Did not need to run postmigration.exe.
Run that bat file. that should kick off the appserver at the console.
The other log to look at is the appserverlauncher.log.
Tried running the .bat file, no joy.

com.bladelogic.om.infra.mfw.util.BlException: Application server oirblgctvwa01 failed to start.
I ran into something similar and had something to do with my keystores. I had to reset my keystore passwords. Not sure if this is what your seeing but something to look into.
Are there any other .log files in the br directory, or event logs being generated?
i can't image what the keystores would have to do with a single appserver being upgraded but i don't have an explainataion for this prob so...
appserver.log isn't updating, presumably because the appserver service won't start
appserverlauncher.log updates when the service fails but the above posted info.
Can you do a ls –ltr *.log in the br directory and attach the ones modified when you ran the upgrade?
Is there anything being posted to your rscd.log?
I’m assuming the agent is running…
