12.2 Configuring Dashboard Ports for RMI Callbacks

Traditionally, firewall communication is restricted from the Dashboard to the Operations Center server. For more information on these RMI port settings, see Section 2.2.1, Verifying Your Operations Center Server’s Default Accounts and Configuration Settings. For information about port configuration, see The Dashboard using RMI in the Operations Center 5.6 Server Configuration Guide.

In some environments, it might be necessary to specify the number of ports available to use for communication from the Operations Center server to the Dashboard.

To specify the RMI Callback Port:

  1. Stop the Dashboard.

    For information on stopping the Dashboard, see Section 2.3.2, Stopping the Dashboard.

  2. Edit the /OperationsCenter_Dashboard_install_path/server/webapps/ManagedObjectsPortlets/WEB-INF/mo-settings.xml file to add the following:





    Where PortNumber is the port number or a range of acceptable port numbers. For example, <string>6050:6059</string> sets 6050 as the lowest available port number and 6059 as the highest available port number.

  3. Start the Dashboard.

    For information on starting the Dashboard, see Section 2.3.1, Starting the Dashboard.
