Communications port requirements

Peer communications are established through HTTP and TCP ports. BMC Atrium Orchestrator communications require unique port assignments for each component, and each component has specific port requirements.

The web server requires two ports: one for standard communications, and a second to receive shutdown commands. Different components can use the same port, provided they are installed on different computers. A port number must be available exclusively on the computer. The following table lists the default ports for BMC Atrium Orchestrator.

Peer communications port

secondary CDP (HA-CDP) 2

The installation program sets the default HA-CDP port number by adding 2 to the primary CDP port number. For example, if you specified port 8504 for the primary CDP, the installation program assigns port 8506 for the HA-CDP.

Peer communications port

JMS with SSL

AP: The installation program sets the start of the default port range by adding 2 to the primary CDP port number. It sets the end of the default port range by adding 256 to the starting port range. The first available port in the range becomes the listening port for the AP. 2

8503-8759

Peer communications port

JMS with SSL

LAP: The installation program sets the start of the default port range by adding 2 to the primary CDP port number. It sets the end of the default port range by adding 256 to the starting port range. The first available port in the range becomes the listening port for the LAP. 2

8503-8759

JMX RMI service port

  • All peers, including the primary CDP, used by the Grid Manager to manage schedules among peers
  • Ports that must be open to allow  BMC Atrium Orchestrator Development Studio to connect to other components. BMC Atrium Orchestrator Development Studio must always be installed on a different computer than the CDP and often, a firewall exists between the two.

    You cannot specify a different port. Ensure that this port is not used by any other entity. 2

    hello, can the ports below 1024 be used in an installation?

    it seem there are messages of "port restricted" in a customer installation.

             "Invalid web server port

              Port 180 is restricted"

    it seems it happens when trying to use ports 80 and 180.

    thank you in advance!

      You cannot use ports below 1024. I've added this information to the page. Thank you for pointing this out.

    Based on the message, I suspect the installer will not allow you to install using any of the 'restricted' ports below 1024.
