1198184 - How to change the default server port numbers on the Central Management Server


How do I change the default server port numbers on the Central Management Server (CMS)? 

The CMS is set up to use default port numbers during installation. The default CMS port number is 6400. This ports fall within the range of ports reserved by Business Objects (6400 to 6410). Thus, BusinessObjects Enterprise communication on these ports should not conflict with third-party applications in place.

Note: Although unlikely, it is possible that the custom applications use these ports. If so, change the default CMS port.

When started and enabled, each of the other BusinessObjects Enterprise servers dynamically binds to an available port (higher than 1024), registers with this port on the CMS, and then listens for BusinessObjects Enterprise requests. If necessary, instruct each server component to listen on a specific port, rather than dynamically selecting any available port.
