To be able to deploy geronimo gbeans, at least geronimo-gbean-deployer should be installed.

 I am getting the following when I tried to deployed my plan, however I am able to install the module:
 
deploy -u system -p manager install-library --groupId example2 f:\MyJavaprojects\SimpleServerGBean-1.0.jar
Using GERONIMO_HOME:   F:\geronimo-framework-2.2.1
Using GERONIMO_TMPDIR: var\temp
Using JRE_HOME:        C:\Java\jdk1.6.0_18\jre
    Installed example2/SimpleServerGBean/1.0/jar
 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
 
F:\geronimo-framework-2.2.1\bin>deploy -u system -p manager deploy  simpleServer_deployment_plan.xml
Using GERONIMO_HOME:   F:\geronimo-framework-2.2.1
Using GERONIMO_TMPDIR: var\temp
Using JRE_HOME:        C:\Java\jdk1.6.0_18\jre
2011-02-23 21:42:12,328 ERROR [DeployTool] Error:
org.apache.geronimo.common.DeploymentException: Unable to deploy simpleServer_de
ployment_plan.xml: No Deployer GBean present in running Geronimo server. This us
ually indicates a serious problem with the configuration of your running Geronim
o server.  If the deployer is present but not started, the workaround is to run
a deploy command like 'start geronimo/geronimo-gbean-deployer/1.0/car'.  If the
deployer service is not present at all (it was undeployed) then you need to eith
er re-install Geronimo or get a deployment plan for the runtime deployer and dis
tribute it while the server is not running and then start the server with a comm
and like the above.  For help on this, write to  and inc
lude the contents of your var/config/config.xml file.
