Abstract: We determine the admissible nilpotent coadjoint orbits of real and $p$-adic split exceptional groups of types $G_2$, $F_4$, $E_6$ and $E_7$. We find that all Lusztig-Spaltenstein special orbits are admissible. Moreover, there exist non-special admissible orbits, corresponding to ``completely odd'' orbits in Lusztig's special pieces. In addition, we determine the number of, and representatives for, the non-even nilpotent $p$-adic rational orbits of $G_2$, $F_4$ and $E_6$.
