Netbackup Client network port 1556

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi All,

I have several questions about the netbackup client network port 1556:

  1. Is it only in use in version 7?
  2. Is it really in use in client? (The reason why is the client also using port 1556 for Oracle  listener)
  3. My colleague kill the PBX daemon  that use that port, why the netbackup still can backup/restore this client?
  4. Is it possible to change the port?

Thank you.

1. Yes. As from NBU 7.0.1. See

2. Yes. Your Oracle dba needs to change Listener port. Symantec has registered port 1556. 
Please show your dba this URL:  
Registered port numbers are listed in numeric order.

3. See TN mentioned in point 1.

4. No. Your dba needs to change Listener port. 
The default Oracle Listener port is 1521.
