How can I see message server port number in profile?

Hi all,

Somebody told me that it's in profile of ascs in AL11

But I didn't find the port number inside.

Does anyone know about that?

    Hi Eric,

    There are many ways to check the Message server port value.

    The default kernel values for Message Server services are:

    • For external communication: 36<NN>
    • For internal communication: 39<NN>

    Where <NN> corresponds to the instance number where Message Server is running.(Either ASCS instance or classic central instance).

    Checking value via ABAP

    • Transaction SMMS: It should bring the a header with service and port like where Message Server is running.
    Message Server Running on : hostname / sapms<SID> ( 36<NN> ) , Internal Communication : 39<NN>

    This is also available on SMMS -> Go To -> Parameters -> Display: Server port

    Checking value via PROFILES

    • The message server host and port are usually maintained on DEFAULT.PFL as this information should be available for all instances.
    rdisp/mshost = <hostname>
    rdisp/msserv = sapms<SID>
    rdisp/msserv_internal = 39<NN>

    The parameter "rdisp/msserv" specifies the service that message server will use. You can check the port number on Operating system services file.

     UNIX: /etc/services 

    Hope it could clarify!
