1) You must restart at least the Beremote service after making this change (in rare cirumstances may need to reboot the actual server)

2) Remote agent publishing MUST be working to the media server if you want to leave the rest of the backup environment on 10000 and only change one remote agent to 9000 (which means Port 6101 MUST be open in the direction of from remote agent to media server (in other words the media server is listening on Port 6101 waiting for a connection from the remote)

Thanks for your reply ,

My main concern is to know after updating the port no #9000 for NDMP in  system32\Drivers\etc  services  file as per technote :TECH24256 i

This is my actual query :Is there any port No i need to change from NDMP level

I am not sure I understand what your problem with this is

However you don't have to use 9000 but changing it in that location is officially how you change it and if you can't use publishing then all servers in the backup strategy need to be on the same control port (with pubishing allowing you to mix it between servers if you want)

Be aware that this is just the NDMP control port

The range of NDMP Data ports will still be needed (configured inside Backup Exec in Network and Security Settings - do not set a range of less than 25 ports and do not include the control port inside the range)
