Agents deployed on Windows

  1. Log in to the computer with the deployed agent.
  2. Open Orion Agent Settings in the Control Panel.
  3. Enter a new port number, and click OK.

Manually change the port on agents deployed on Windows

  1. On the computer with the deployed agent, edit the following configuration file using a text editor:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\AgentManagement\SolarWinds.AgentManagement.ServiceCore.dll.config

  2. Change the port number on the following line:

    <agentManagementServiceConfiguration messagingPort="17778" />

  3. Save the file.
  4. Restart the SolarWinds Orion Module Engine service.
  • If you installed the agent manually, you can change the port number during installation through the wizard in the web console.
  • If you deployed the agent from the server, the port number is set automatically.
  • If you used the MST file for mass deployment, you must download a new MST file from the server after you change the port number.

Agents deployed on Linux-based computers

  1. Log on to the computer with the agent installed on it. You may need to su to an account with root-level privileges.
  2. In the terminal, type service swiagentd init.
  3. Choose option 3 and enter the new port number.
  4. Enter 7 to save your changes.
