During installation of Oracle 11.1.16 in SunSolaris, by choosing options in staticports.ini, we had custom ports for Domain port, managed server listen port, and managed server ssl ports (based on our firewall needs). We left all the other OPMN and BIFOUNDATION ports to be default.
But now we realized, we cannot connect to 9703 (default BIServer port), to create Oracle DSN connection, because of firewall restrictions. I have been trying to find out how to change 9703 to 9006 (this is the port we want to access and have as BIServer port), but not been successful, after reading many threads and blogs.
(1) I know we have the port range in Scalability tab in Fusion EM, Default is 9700 to 9810. If I change that to 9000 to 9810 (since I want to use 9006), will that be OK ?
(2) Also we need to modify the port number as 9006 in some file - NQSConfig.INI or staticports.ini ? Where and how to do it ? Any help is appreciated pls.
This Configuration setting is managed by Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control
Thanks. I tried this, but cannot seem to make it work. After changing the range in fusion em (which stays intact with my changes after restart also), and the values in NQSCONFIG, still after restart it shows 9703 in EM console, and NQSCONFIG automatically gets rewritten to default.
Yes Srini. It does allow you to specify custom ports only during installation time. Appears, its not an ongoing config file where you can make changes, restart services and for it to take effect everytime, atleast not for the BIFOUNDATION ports, from what it seems. Its kinda misleading.
I had tried that as my first step. I changed the range first through EM, restarted services (just to be sure). Stopped all services again. Then i changed NQSCONFIG - RPC_SERVICE_OR_PORT value. Restarted services again. It does not take effect. The value is modified back to 9703 which is the default during installation time.
