Steps to Reproduce

1) Configured a Node in System Management Application that is running on Websphere.
2) Click on the configured node and the mbean error occurs.

Root Cause

A misconfiguration issue. The Node has been incorrectly pointing to the Websphere Server's WC_defaulthost.


When running System Management Application on Websphere, the Node should have the following configuration:

1) Configue SMA with Remote connection 
2) Specify the Host Name 
3) Specify the port number which should be the SOAP_CONNECTOR_ADDRESS.
4) The credentials should be the same as Websphere Administrator's credentials.
