Communication 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 one port for standard communications and another port 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.

Secondary CDP (HA-CDP), AP, LAP

The installation program sets the start of the default port range by adding 2 to the primary CDP port number.  For example, if the primary CDP port number is 61719, this port number will be 61721.

The installation program sets the start of the default port range by adding 2 to the primary CDP port number.  For example, if the primary CDP port number is 61719, the port number for the HA-CDP, AP, and LAP will be 61721. The port number for all of these peers will be the same.

Similarly, if the CDP web service port is 38080, the corresponding embedded RSSO uses the first available port number (in increments of 10) in the range 38090 - 65535.

BAO Dashboard uses this port to communicate with the grid.

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

BMC Atrium Orchestrator Development Studio, which is a client, needs access to the following ports:

  • CDP server's standard communication port 38080
  • Peer communications port 61719
  • Repository server's standard communication port 28080

The following image depicts the communication paths (shown in the Communication paths topic) and the communication ports used for communication over these paths.

Note that two peers cannot be installed using the same ports on the same server.
