Changing message server port for ABAP+Java Instance

Hi,

We had change our message server port for the Java instance from 3607 to 3667.

We did this using the j2ee config tool. We also verified this information through the console config.

But when we look into system info URL using the URL as shown below, we still that the old message server port is being used. We have recycled the instance couple of times , but does not seem to help.

Any ideas where else we have to change the port no. for the message server

    hi

    have you check your service file at:

    C:\WINNT\system32\drivers\etc\services (if a winnt system)

    check the message ports there. e.g.:

    sapmsXI1 3620/tcp # SAP System Message Port

    just a hint.

    Regards

      Hi Sheng,

      Thanks for your suggestion.

      This is an ABAP+Java Instance so we do have the entry

      sapmsDV5 3607/tcp

      in our services file. I am not sure whether we can get away chaning that one since it is needed for the ABAP instance.

    Hi,

    the message server port is also defined in the SAP system profile files. So you might want to have a look at those and change the appropriate values.

    The profile file to look for (for a Java instance) is named <SID>_<InstanceName>_<hostname> and is located in the \usr\sap\<SID>\SYS\profile directory. The property to change is rdisp/msserv.

    Hope that helps!

      Hi,

      I forgot to mention in my original post. We already have changed this profile parameter as well.

      Thanks ,

    Hi guys,

    I solved this on my own with documentation help from SAP.

    I had to change the port no. in the Global dispatcher and Global server area as well.

    Please see details from SAP below.

    "Message Server: Changing Ports/Hosts shows which areas need to be adjusted if

    the port or host of the message server changes. Ports are, of course, changed in the

    instance profile of the Central Services instance. In the example, the port 3677 and

    the HTTP port 8177 have been set, and the new host is called twdfxxx. You need to

    use the Config Tool to set these values. For each instance, you need to maintain the

    corresponding values for the Message server host and Message server port on the

    Message Server and Bootstrap tab page. The connection details for dispatchers or

    servers to the message server are maintained in the Cluster Manager. As shown in the

    figure, the ms.host and ms.port are maintained, respectively, in the Cluster Manager

    with Global Dispatcher and the Global Server. After you have maintained all of the

    parameters, you can start the instances."
