Configuring listening port for the vxdbd daemon

The vxdbd daemon listens on TCP port 3233, by default. If this port is in use by some other application, vxdbd can be configured to listen on an alternate port. In cluster environments, vxdbd must be configured to listen on the same port on all the nodes.

To configure listening port for the vxdbd daemon

  1. Stop the vxdbd daemon:
    # /opt/VRTS/bin/vxdbdctrl stop
  2. Set VXDBD_PORT to the desired port number by editing the /etc/vx/vxdbed/admin.properties configuration file.
  3. Start the vxdbd daemon:
    # /opt/VRTS/bin/vxdbdctrl start
