SQL Server DB: where could I find the TCP port configured?

This issue has been solved. See solution.


I don't have access to the SQL Server machine (so I cannot use SQL Server Management Studio and so on).
I cannot run netstat and so on (just an example).

Where could I read (on the SEP Manager machine) the TCP port used for DB communication (the one configured during the installation)?

I think there is a conf file inside wich this information is stored... or not?
Or a log that tell me "Open connection on xxxx server on yyyy port".

The default port is typically 1433. You specify this port number when you create the database.

I've already read that post too smiley

I'd like only to know if exist a conf file or a log with this information inside.

I know you can verify in the registry at:


servername\instance key

I have not seen a conf file so this is a good question

I'd suggest checking out the odbcutil.log file in %ProgramFiles%\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager\bin

This should get updated whenever the Management Server Configuration Wizard is run and will contain the SQL Server details (including the port).
