I am testing BladeLogic 8.6 in my lab (just happens that I have time on my hands for a little while). The installation went well but I seem to have a port conflict between blappserv & blpxe. I can start either with no problems but not both. Whichever starts last fails with port already in use. I've changed several ports registryport, minport etc.. with no luck for either _pxe, default, & _Template. I have followed and read all that I could find in the communities and everything I tested seems fine. running a netstat several different ways and identifying what is using the ports still reveal no problems.
My environment consists of 1 DB server, 2 application servers each with a single instance. The first application server also has tftp & pxe. This is where the problem exists. I do not have multiple instances running using the same ports. If I stop the services manually the ports all become free & available. When I start the blappserv I see the ports active and java binds to it. when I stop it everything frees up nicely.
However, if I start blappserv and blpxe, blpxe fails with port already in use ??? (whatever port is defined). If I start them in reverse than blappserv fails the same way.
Attached are the blasadmin extracts for _pxe & default and blasadmin -a list along with netstat output. I've double checked these ports against a BL 8.3sp3 environment and it seems similar as this but everything starts and works.
so far I changed the MinPort:9851 for _pxe, I've changed the RegisteryPort:9839 and several with no resolution.
Any help is appreciated.
