WebSphere Lombardi Edition 7.1 Port information

Question & Answer


Question

What ports are related to Websphere Lombardi Edition 7.1?

Answer

This question is an extremely complex question and does not have a single answer. The answer depends on several factors such as: is this a node in a cluster, are/were there port conflicts at installation time, if you have done post-configuration on the ports and so on.

Background information


During installation, WebSphere Lombardi Edition 7.1 attempts to use ports that it detects are available on the server. After installation, WebSphere Lombardi Edition 7.1 lists the ports that it uses in the following file:

<Lombardi_home>/AppServer/profiles/Lombardi/config/cells/LombardiCell01/nodes/ProcessCenter01/serverindex.xml.

Because WebSphere Lombardi Edition 7.1 installs a full WebSphere server, the preceding file lists more ports than are actually used by the WebSphere Lombardi Edition code.

How to determine the ports WebSphere Application Server is using


If you look under the WebSphere Application Server administrative console, you can find many of the ports each server uses:

Clustering
If you define a horizontal cluster with several cluster members, each cluster member (being an application server) has unique values for the following ports. The value assigned to each of these addresses is incremented by 1 for each cluster member (assuming that the port is not held by any process):
    • BOOTSTRAP_ADDRESS
    • ORB_LISTENER_ADDRESS
    • WC_defaulthost
    • SIB_ENDPOINT_ADDRESS
    • BOOTSTRAP_ADDRESS
    • ORB_LISTENER_ADDRESS
    • CSIV2_SSL_SERVERAUTH_LISTENER_ADDRESS

Note: The port numbers listed in the following table are samples. The actual port used by your WebSphere Lombardi Edition installation might be different due to port conflicts during installation.

For Process Center

Important: Refer to the following WebSphere Application Server document:
WebSphere firewall ports that must be open for communication between the deployment manager and nodeagent.

    Additional notes:
    There might be other ports necessary to the operation of WebSphere Lombardi Edition 7.1 that are not specifically defined in this article. Again, check the "How to determine the ports WebSphere Application Server is using" section at the top of this article.
