This HOWTO article covers the modification of the port used by the CCS web console.
The web console connection port is changed fromm the default 8181 / 8443 to the first free port starting at 14191 when the upgrade takes place to CCS5.2RU1 (RU = Release Upgrade).
<Browser> can't establish a connection to the server at 10.134.51.17:8181.
<Browser> can't establish a connection to the server at 10.134.51.17:8443.
HTTP Status 404 - /spc/spc
Windows or Solaris CCS 5.2RU1 Management server (MS) console connection via Secure Socket Layer (SSL)
Where previously a connection would be made to http://<IP or Name>:8181 which would load the certificate and redirect to https://<IP or Name>:8443 using VRTSWeb, now it would be made to https://<IP or Name>:14191 using esmweb.
Changing the port for the CommandCentral Console
For example, you might want to change the default port from 14191 to 8443. 8443 was the default port before the 5.2 RU1 release. You can still use port 8443 as long as no other products use the port. For example, 8443 is the default port for the Symantec Web server (VRTSweb). Other Symantec products might use that port.
To change the port for the CommandCentral Console
- Log on to the Management Server.
- Verify that port 8443 is not in use by VRTSweb.
# netstat -an | grep 8443
> netstat | FIND "8443"
- Stop the service.
# /opt/VRTSweb/bin/webgui stop force
Stop the Symantec Web Server Service
- Go to the following directory:
\Program Files\VERITAS\CommandCentral Storage\Web Engine\esmweb\conf
esmweb.cfgin a text editor.
- Change the value of the SSLPORT parameter to the desired port number.
- Save and close
- In an operating system console, change to the following directory:
- Type the following commands to restart the Web server:
./vxccs stop esmweb
./vxccs start esmweb
vxccs.bat stop CCSGUI
vxccs.bat start CCSGUI
