Error when updating Windows service using wassservice.exe

September 15th, 2017

Trying to update the nodeagent service following the guideline found at IBM Knowledge Center failed, complaining about the value of the -username was not known.

Unrecognized parameters encountered on the command line: 'wasadmin '

It turned out that I had a slash at the end of the folder name for the washome, which then acted as an escape char for the double qoute

-washome "D:\WebSphere\AppServer\"

Changed to

-washome "D:\WebSphere\AppServer"

and all was fine.
