How to change the port no of the sia and cmc

I am using Business object xi 3.1 and it is installed on the default ports

i.e sia 6401 and cmc 6400

I want to use Lifecycle management ( lcm ) to transfer files between two machines

located in different places. But the port no 6400 is blocked.

Can i change the port no used by Business objects so that i can transfer files between

the 2 locations.

Any documentation or steps would be helpful.

Thank you

    Hi Sridhar,

    Kindly implement the following steps:

    1. Launch CCM and stop the SIA Services. Open the SIA server properties.

    2. Click on Startup and Click on Central Management Server.

    3. Change the port no here.

    4. Click on Configuration tab change the port number of SIA here.

    5. Browse the Business objects Directory (<>:\Program Files\Business Objects\Tomcat55\webapps\CmcApp\WEB-INF).

    6. Open the Web.xml file in notepad and change the port number to 6400(<param-value>Athens:6400</param-value>

    7. Do the same steps for InfoViewApp.

    8. Restart the SIA and Tomcat Services from CCM.

    I hope it helps; let me know if you find difficulty while implementing the steps.

    Regards,

    Nakul Mehta

      Hi,

      I am using BO 4.1.

      Some one from the admin's group has changed the CMS port number. Can some one tell me if there is any way to track the name of the BO user who has changed the CMS port number.

      Thanks,

      Raj

    Hi!

    Did you make sure that the responding port is open?

    You can define the port for the CentralManagementServer via CCM -> Serverproperties -> Startup -> Port.

    Within the Command Line you need to enter "-requestport 6401"

    And everything else via http://yourserver:8080/CmcApp -> Servers

    where you can define the Requestports to be used.

    ciao Hakan
