ACS_CSI_HOSTPORT entry in vm.conf (on UNIX)
The following configuration entry applies to NetBackup servers:
ACS_CSI_HOSTPORT = ACS_library_software_hostname socket_name
The valid value for ACS_library_software_hostname is the host name of the ACS library host. Do not use the IP address of the ACS library host for this parameter.
The valid values for socket_name are 1024 - 65535 and 0. The value must match the value on the ACSLS server for the port that the CSI uses for inbound packets.
If 0 (zero), NetBackup uses the previous behavior of CSI and acsssi (no specific ports).
This entry specifies the port where the acsssi process sends its ACSLS requests on the ACSLS server. The ACSLS CSI must use this port to accept inbound ACSLS requests from acsssi processes.
This entry, the ACS_SSI_INET_PORT entry, and the ACS_TCP_RPCSERVICE entry are commonly used with firewall implementations. With these three entries in the vm.conf file, TCP connections use the designated destination ports. Note that TCP source ports are not restricted.
For example, a NetBackup media server has two ACSLS servers (ACSLS_1 and ACSLS_2) behind firewalls. Both servers listen for queries on port 30031 and the firewall allows traffic through this port.
The vm.conf entries are as follows:
ACS_TCP_RPCSERVICE ACS_CSI_HOSTPORT = ACSLS_1 30031 ACS_CSI_HOSTPORT = ACSLS_2 30031 ACS_SSI_INET_PORT = ACSLS_1 30032 ACS_SSI_INET_PORT = ACSLS_2 30033
Each acsssi process sends queries to the respective ACSLS server's port 30031, and the ACSLS server is configured to listen for queries on this port.
