On Windows systems, the directory path to this command is install_path\NetBackup\wmc\bin\install\configurePorts\
The NetBackup plug-in for VMware vCenter includes a NetBackup Recovery Wizard for restoring virtual machines. The NetBackup Recovery Wizard requires the proper configuration of web ports for the Web Services Layer (WSL) application on the master server. Without the correct port configuration, you cannot authorize the plug-in to restore virtual machines that were backed up by that master server.
If the web ports (http, https, and shutdown) are not correctly configured on the master server, use the configurePorts command to manually configure the ports.
You must have administrator privileges to run this command.
Enables the communication between the master server and the media server on port 5637. The NetBackup Web Management Console (nbwmc) service running on the master server uses this port to communicate with media servers configured for cloud storage. You must restart the NetBackup Web Management Console (nbwmc) service for the changes to take effect.
This option is applicable for media server versions 7.7.x to 8.1.2 only.
Valid values are true and false.
- -httpPort http_port_number
Specifies the http port number.
- -httpsPort https_port_number
Specifies the https port number.
- -overrideCluster value
Overrides the ports that are used on all nodes of the cluster for a master server that is clustered. Valid values are true and false.
This option updates the following file on shared disk:
UNIX or Linux:
The NetBackup installer for WSL uses this file during installation in a clustered mode.
Disables communication between the master server and the cloud storage media server on port 5637. You must restart the NetBackup Web Management Console (nbwmc) service for the changes to take effect.
Port 5637 is no longer used after the legacy media servers are upgraded to version 8.2 or later. This option disables the NetBackup Web Management Console (nbwmc) service usage on the port.
- -shutdownPort shutdown_port
Specifies the shutdown port number.
Displays the current port numbers.
Configure the http port on the master server to 8443.
