Changing the NetWorker Management Console (NMC) service port

By default, the NetWorker Console database uses port 2638 for TCP/IP communications. If you other applications running on the same system you may come across a conflict where both applications are using the same service port. To resolve the conflict simple change the service port.

Follow these steps to change the NMC service port.

  1. Open a terminal or command prompt window
  2. Stop the GST Service. For Solaris and Linux, type the following as root user:
    # /etc/init.d/gst stop
    For Windows, type the following at the command line as administrator:
    C:\> net stop gstd /f
  3. Edit the gstd.conf file to add or change the line int db_svc_port=port_number, where port_number is any available port in the environment except the default 2638. For example: int db_svc_port=3200 The gstd.conf is located in the following locations:
    • Solaris: /opt/LGTOnmc/etc
    • Microsoft Windows: C:\Program Files\Legato\Management\GST\etc
    • Linux: /opt/lgtonmc/etc
    NOTE:Any firewall in the connection path must allow bi-directional communication for this port.
  4. Run the command to update the port value in the NetWorker Console. The command is located in the following locations:
    • Solaris: /opt/LGTOnmc/bin
    • Windows: C:\Program Files\Legato\Management\GST\bin
    • Linux: /opt/lgtonmc/bin
  5. Restart the GST Service. For Solaris and Linux run the following as root:
    # /etc/init.d/gst start
    For Windows run the following from the command line as Administrator:
    C:\> net start gstd
  6. Close the terminal or command prompt window.
