Description:

How can we change the following UWCC references?

  1. How to change the hostname to the fully qualified hostname (ex: ibapbo02vt.cabot.it).
  2. How to change the Portal port# from 8080 to 80.

Solution:

Use the following steps to change the Portal Port number:

To change the portal's port number, there are two files that need to be modified:

  • The local.properties file under /portalserver/properties.
    Open this file in WordPad and change the value for host.port=.
    By default this is 8080, but this can be changed to any available port.

  • The file server.xml located in \<portalserver install directory>\jakarta-tomcat-3.3a\conf needs to be modified. Open this in WordPad. Scroll down to the section defined as
    "Connectors". Here the value for port is defined as:

    <Http10Connector port="8080"

    secure="false"
    maxThreads="100"
    maxSpareThreads="50"
    minSpareThreads="10" />

Change the value "8080" to match the port number defined in local.properties. Save changes to the files and restart the portal. It is now accessible using the newly defined port number.

The following xml files are involved in the configuration of the hostname and port:

"C:\Program Files\CA\CleverPath Portal\jakarta-tomcat-4.1.29\conf\server.xml"
"C:\Program Files\CA\CleverPath Portal\properties\local.properties"
"C:\Program Files\CA\Unicenter Workload Control Center\_uninst\portal\uejminst\library.xml"
"C:\Program Files\CA\Unicenter Workload Control Center\AdminServer\conf\server.xml"
"C:\Program Files\CA\Unicenter Workload Control Center\ConfigServer\conf\server.xml"
"C:\Program Files\CA\Unicenter Workload Control Center\ConfigServer\config\default\eiam.xml"
"C:\Program Files\CA\Unicenter Workload Control Center\ConfigServer\config\default\jobconsole_server_config.xml"
"C:\Program Files\CA\Unicenter Workload Control Center\ConfigServer\config\default\jobconsole_servlet_config.xml"
"C:\Program Files\CA\Unicenter Workload Control Center\ConfigServer\config\manifest.xml"
"C:\Program Files\CA\Unicenter Workload Control Center\ConfigServer\config\working\eiam.xml"
"C:\Program Files\CA\Unicenter Workload Control Center\ConfigServer\config\working\jobconsole_server_config.xml"
"C:\Program Files\CA\Unicenter Workload Control Center\ConfigServer\config\working\jobconsole_servlet_config.xml"
"C:\Program Files\CA\Unicenter Workload Control Center\ConfigServer\config\working\profiles.xml"
"C:\Program Files\CA\Unicenter Workload Control Center\EventServer\conf\server.xml"
"C:\Program Files\CA\Unicenter Workload Control Center\JobStatusConsoleServer\conf\server.xml"
"C:\Program Files\CA\Unicenter Workload Control Center\MonitorServer\conf\server.xml"
"C:\Program Files\CA\Unicenter Workload Control Center\MonitorServer\webapps\UEJMMonitor\WEB-INF\web.xml"
"C:\Program Files\CA\Unicenter Workload Control Center\OPSMVSServer\conf\server.xml"
"C:\Program Files\CA\Unicenter Workload Control Center\UIFrameworkServer\conf\server.xml"
"C:\Program Files\CA\Unicenter Workload Control Center\UIFrameworkServer\webapps\UEJMUIFramework\WEB-INF\classes\com\ca\uejm\resources\uejmlaunchitems.xml"

As far as changing the hostname, it was managed by modifying the name to the Fully Qualified Hostname in these files.

The issue regarding the change of port still remains as eIAM authorization errors continue event after the changes and also the MDB por_document needs to be changed.
