List ports for BOE services in UNIX

Can you tell me the command/process to list all the assigned ports on a UNIX BOXI R2 SP3 environment.

./serverconfig.sh -4(List) will list the servers. Yet, we need to list the ports assigned to each service.

The list below is exactly what I am looking for. Yet, I need to show this type of list extracted from our specific server to satisfy C&A requirements.

Can you assist?

boe-cms 6400 Business Objects CMS contact port

boe-was 6401 boe-was

boe-eventsrv 6402 boe-eventsrv

boe-cachesvr 6403 boe-cachesvr

boe-filesvr 6404 Business Objects Enterprise internal server

boe-pagesvr 6405 Business Objects Enterprise internal server

boe-processsvr 6406 Business Objects Enterprise internal server

boe-resssvr1 6407 Business Objects Enterprise internal server

boe-resssvr2 6408 Business Objects Enterprise internal server

boe-resssvr3 6409 Business Objects Enterprise internal server

boe-resssvr4 6410 Business Objects Enterprise internal server

    OK - So if no ports are specified in the ccm.config file, is there a standard range of ports that are commonly assigned to each or all of the BOXI services/daemons? And, where is this documented?

    Hi,

    you can use netstat -p and filter out everything expect the BOE daemons.

    • netstat -an | grep portnumber will tell you if a port is in use.

      To assign a port, you have to edit your ccm.config file and add a -requestport line to each of the serverLAUNCH statements and declare which port it is to run on. Then you have to restart each service to put the change into effect.

    Hi John,

    I think what you are asking is how you can get a list of ALL the ports that the different BOE components use. By default, most of the servers use random ports so this list would change each and every time the service was restarted. The CMS and SIA use ports 6400 and 6410 respectively but the other servers assign at random.

    Luckily, you can assign dedicated ports from within the CMC application. If you go to the properties of each server listed, you can actually specify a port in there. In XIR2, you have to add the -requestPort <port> switch to the command line of each server in the ccm.config file.

    Most customers with this type of requirement will ask for a range of ports (6400-7400) and will assign out the ports to the servers. This way you know which ports/range is being used.

    The Administrator guide covers this in a little more detail.

    Thanks

    Jonathan
