Changing ports

You can change the HCL Digital Experience ports values after installation if there are port conflicts with other cells on the system.

Before you begin

HCL is installed.
Note: The starting port parameter is required for a successful completion of the modify-ports-by-startport task. When you specify a start port, this port becomes the base for assigning port values. The code increments this value as each port is assigned, which means that the HCL ports are assigned incrementally starting with the port defined with the modify-ports-by-startport task.

Procedure

  1. Run the following task from the wp_profile_root/ConfigEngine directory to generate the HCL Portal and HCL Web Content Manager_PortMatrix.txt file:
    Note: The port file is in the wp_profile_root/ConfigEngine/log directory. It lists the HCL Digital Experience (HCL Portal and HCL Web Content Manager) ports for your installation.
    • AIX® HP-UX Linux™ Solaris: ./ConfigEngine.sh list-server-ports-by-name -DServerName=HCL Portal and HCL Web Content Manager -DWasPassword=password
    • Windows™: ConfigEngine.bat list-server-ports-by-name -DServerName=HCL Portal and HCL Web Content Manager -DWasPassword=password
    • IBM® i: ConfigEngine.sh list-server-ports-by-name -DServerName=HCL Portal and HCL Web Content Manager -DWasPassword=password
    • z/OS®: ./ConfigEngine.sh list-server-ports-by-name -DServerName=HCL Portal and HCL Web Content Manager -DWasPassword=password
  2. Stop the HCL Digital Experience server.
  3. Run the following command to change the starting port number:
    • AIX HP-UX Linux Solaris: ./ConfigEngine.sh modify-ports-by-startport -DWasPassword=password -DModifyPortsServer=HCL Portal and HCL Web Content Manager -DStartPort=starting port number
    • Windows: ConfigEngine.bat modify-ports-by-startport -DWasPassword=password -DModifyPortsServer=HCL Portal and HCL Web Content Manager -DStartPort=starting port number
    • IBM i: ConfigEngine.sh modify-ports-by-startport -DWasPassword=password -DModifyPortsServer=HCL Portal and HCL Web Content Manager -DStartPort=starting port number
    • z/OS: ./ConfigEngine.sh modify-ports-by-startport -DWasPassword=password -DModifyPortsServer=HCL Portal and HCL Web Content Manager -DStartPort=starting port number
  4. Run the following command to change ports by using the port file:
    Note: Sample port files are available on the Setup disc. The following information is an example of a port file although the port values are different based on your environment:
    BOOTSTRAP_ADDRESS=10035
    SOAP_CONNECTOR_ADDRESS=10025
    ORB_LISTENER_ADDRESS=10034 
    SAS_SSL_SERVERAUTH_LISTENER_ADDRESS=10041
    CSIV2_SSL_SERVERAUTH_LISTENER_ADDRESS=10036
    CSIV2_SSL_MUTUALAUTH_LISTENER_ADDRESS=10033
    WC_adminhost=10042
    WC_defaulthost=10039
    DCS_UNICAST_ADDRESS=10030
    WC_adminhost_secure=10032
    WC_defaulthost_secure=10029
    SIP_DEFAULTHOST=10027
    SIP_DEFAULTHOST_SECURE=10026
    IPC_CONNECTOR_ADDRESS=10037
    SIB_ENDPOINT_ADDRESS=10028
    SIB_ENDPOINT_SECURE_ADDRESS=10038
    SIB_MQ_ENDPOINT_ADDRESS=10040
    SIB_MQ_ENDPOINT_SECURE_ADDRESS=10031
