    Why ports outside the portrange are used in OBIEE 12.2.1.1

    Nivedita Venkateswaran-Oracle

      During installation we provided a port range (e.g. 9900-9999) for OBIEE.
      After installation it seems that processes use ports outside this range.

      tcp 8 0 172.24.5.99:9524 172.24.5.99:9902 CLOSE_WAIT 59312/nqsserver
      tcp 8 0 172.24.5.99:9572 172.24.5.99:9902 CLOSE_WAIT 59312/nqsserver
      tcp 8 0 172.24.5.99:9512 172.24.5.99:9902 CLOSE_WAIT 59312/nqsserver
      tcp 8 0 172.24.5.99:9550 172.24.5.99:9902 CLOSE_WAIT 59312/nqsserver
      tcp 8 0 172.24.5.99:9541 172.24.5.99:9902 CLOSE_WAIT 59312/nqsserver
      tcp 8 0 172.24.5.99:9554 172.24.5.99:9902 CLOSE_WAIT 59312/nqsserver

      As you can see here, process nqserver (running on port 9902) holds several ports locked starting from 9512. We need these ports for another installation.

      So the question is: can we configure that ALL OBIEE ports fit into the range 9900-9999?
