How to modify the default port used for client server communication.
If another application has port 20031 open on a NetVault client, the client cannot communicate with the NetVault Server.
By default, NetVault uses port 20031 for both UDP and TCP. Sometimes customers may be running systems that need to use this port for other software that cannot be changed, and in that case it is possible to reconfigure NetVault to use a different port number for one or both protocols. Another application using port 20031 prevents client/server communication and may also prevent NVBU from starting.
Note that you MUST do this on ALL NetVault machines in the domain. This example will use port 20035.
1- Shutdown NetVault on the server and ALL clients in the domain (open nvconfigurator, go to the ‘Service’ tab, click ’Stop Service’).
2- Add the following lines to the bottom of the file [netvault home]/config/nvnmgr.cfg on the server and ALL clients in the domain.
3- Remove the file [netvault home]/config/nvnmgr.cfg.lck on the server and ALL clients in the domain.
4- Remove the file [netvault home]/etc/machines.dat and [netvault home]/etc/machines.dat.lck on the server
5- Start NetVault on the server and ALL clients in the domain. Open nvconfigurator, go to the ‘Service’ tab, click ’Start Service’
This procedure must be followed whenever you add clients (only the client steps) to the domain.
