WS Startup: NET_Bind (in depth, however).

Hi guys,

Got a bit of a conundrum here... While this problem has been mentioned previously, no-one seems to have gone into that much detail...

The problem is with starting the Websphere server and its allocation of ports.

Bit of background: For the last few months, when the server has either crashed or even on a "stop/start", there have been issues starting up server instances (error contained below). Despite running netstat traces and other debug tools, the ports appeared to be free. A server restart (warm or cold) seemed to solve these and it would start normally on next booting. However, recently even a restart hasn't solved it and we've been having to change ports left, right and center!

On start, it throws the following error:

[14/07/06 09:41:04:633 BST] 7d066fcb WsServer E WSVR0009E: Error occurred during startup


I ran netstat and checked; and low and behold the port *isn't* in use...So then I tried to create a socket and connect...

Test Starting
Test Complete....Results follow!

After I change the "SOAP" and "Bootstrap" port in the serverindex.xml it starts up, but then throws the following error:

I have also written a program that tries to open a socket on the server, and then connect a client... As you can see it works fine:


:\port>java -jar SocketTester.jar 9081
Test Starting
Test Complete....Results follow!

SERVER ERRORS
*******
No errors encountered during the run!

CLIENT ERRORS
*******
No errors encountered during the run!

Message 1:Server listening on port: 0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0:9081!
Message 2:Client connected to server /127.0.0.1 on port 9081


As a last resort, I run "netstat -an"
When I run netstat I get the following; 9081 as you can see isn't used.

We believe there are two or three possible explanations:

1). Websphere maintains a list, somewhere inside, of ports it "thinks" are in use and won't allow apps to bind to... However exhaustive binary-file searching hasn't turned anything up.
2). Websphere releases the ports, but doesn't "register" to itself that they have been released (ie a thread is hanging somewhere) - but we have discounted this as a server restart should clear but doesn't.
3). The error message shown is in fact incorrect and there is another error that has been cast/abstrcted to a NET_Bind excpetion. A fairly likely scenario perhaps.
4). That Websphere is somehow trying to dynamically change some of the ports it uses on startup. Possibility maybe?

Any advice would be greately appreciated - as I said, there are posts of a similar nature around but none of them go into any detail and seem content at changing port numbers - however we have lots of third party and interfacing apps that make port number changing an unfeasible and maintenance nightmare.

Any more info required, just ask!

Cheers,

Al.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
