2089881 - SMICM: You might not have the permissions to bind the service

Symptom

Trying to enable an ICM port (service) in SMICM transaction, it returns an error, because ICMBND cannot bind the service.
WebDispatcher/ICM trace (dev_webdisp/dev_icm) shows:

*** ERROR => IcmStartIcmBnd: "/usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/exe/run/icmbnd" failed with rc: <RC> - inspect "dev_icmbnd" [icxxextbnd_m 1116]
*** WARNING => Could not start service (rc=-1)

On dev_icmbnd, you get following error:

***LOG Q0I=> NiIBindSocket: <host_IP>:<port_nr> bind (13: Permission denied) [nixxi.cpp 3739]
*** ERROR => NiIBindSocket: SiBind failed for hdl x/sock y
(SI_EADDR_NAVAIL/13; I4; ST; <host_IP>:<port_nr>) [nixxi.cpp 3739]
*** ERROR => icmbnd: Ni3Listen failed for host <hostname>(<host_IP>):<port_nr> (rc=-16): NIEMYHOST_VERIFY [icxxbnd_mt.c 690]
*** ERROR => icmbnd: You might not have the permissions to bind the service: <port_nr> [icxxbnd_mt.c 692]
icmbnd: exit process with rc=-16

or

***LOG Q0I=> NiIBindSocket: bind (98: Address already in use) [nixxi.cpp 3741]
*** ERROR => NiIBindSocket: SiBind failed for hdl x/sock y
(SI_EPORT_INUSE/98; I4; ST;<host_IP>:<port_nr>) [nixxi.cpp 3741]
 *** ERROR => icmbnd: NiListen failed for <port_nr> (rc=-4): NIESERV_USED [icxxbnd_mt.c 612] 
 *** ERROR => icmbnd: You might not have the permissions to bind the service: <port_nr> [icxxbnd_mt.c 614]
 icmbnd: exit process with rc=-4

The port you want to bind <port_nr> is lower than 1024 (on UNIX); so you have icm/server_port_x correctly configured with "EXTBIND=1".
