Verify Port Requirements

Verify Port Requirements

The installer sets up the ports for components in the Informatica domain, and it designates a range of dynamic ports to use for some application services.
You can specify the port numbers to use for the components and a range of dynamic port numbers to use for the application services. Or you can use the default port numbers provided by the installer. Verify that the port numbers are available on the machines where you run the installer.
Services and nodes can fail to start if there is a port conflict.
The following table describes the port requirements for installation:
Port
Description
Node port
Port number for the node created during installation. Default is 6005.
Service Manager port
Port number used by the Service Manager on the node. The Service Manager listens for incoming connection requests on this port. Client applications use this port to communicate with the services in the domain. The Informatica command line programs use this port to communicate to the domain. This is also the port for the SQL data service JDBC/ODBC driver. Default is 6006.
Service Manager Shutdown port
Port number that controls server shutdown for the domain Service Manager. The Service Manager listens for shutdown commands on this port. Default is 6007.
Informatica Administrator port
Port number used by Informatica Administrator. Default is 6008.
Informatica Administrator shutdown port
Port number that controls server shutdown for Informatica Administrator. Informatica Administrator listens for shutdown commands on this port. Default is 6009.
Minimum port number
Lowest port number in the range of dynamic port numbers that can be assigned to the application service processes that run on this node. Default is 6014.
Maximum port number
Highest port number in the range of dynamic port numbers that can be assigned to the application service processes that run on this node. Default is 6114.
Range of dynamic ports for application services
Range of port numbers that can be dynamically assigned to application service processes as they start up. When you start an application service that uses a dynamic port, the Service Manager dynamically assigns the first available port in this range to the service process. The number of ports in the range must be at least twice the number of application service processes that run on the node. Default is 6014 to 6114.
The Service Manager dynamically assigns port numbers from this range to the Model Repository Service.
Static ports for application services
Static ports have dedicated port numbers assigned that do not change. When you create the application service, you can accept the default port number, or you can manually assign the port number.
The following services use static port numbers:
  • Content Management Service. Default is 8105 for HTTP.
  • Data Integration Service. Default is 8095 for HTTP.
