By default the SRM Profiler Website uses port 9000. Some customer may wish to change this to another port due to port availability or firewall issues. There is a configuration file within the install subdirectory of SRM Profiler that will allow users to change from default port 9000 to another port.

In this example we will change the SRM Profiler Website port to 80. This example will also show you how to change the port assignment for SRM Profiler running on Windows or Linux.

The file we must modify is called server.xml and it can be found in the following locations:

  • Windows: <installed drive>:\Program Files\SolarWinds\SRM Profiler Server\conf
  • Linux: /opt/Storage_Manager_Server/conf

Open the file with a text editor and do a search for "9000". You will see a section that looks like the following snippet:

    <Connector port="9000" protocol="HTTP/1.1" URIEncoding="UTF-8"

    disableUploadTimeout="true" connectionTimeout="20000"

    acceptCount="100" redirectPort="8443" enableLookups="false"

    maxSpareThreads="75" minSpareThreads="25"

    maxThreads="150" maxHttpHeaderSize="8192"/>

The entry for Connector port= is where we change the port assignment for the SRM Profiler Website. Change the entry from 9000 to 80.

    <Connector port="80" protocol="HTTP/1.1" URIEncoding="UTF-8"

    disableUploadTimeout="true" connectionTimeout="20000"

    acceptCount="100" redirectPort="8443" enableLookups="false"

    maxSpareThreads="75" minSpareThreads="25"

    maxThreads="150" maxHttpHeaderSize="8192"/>

Save your changes to the file. Finally we must restart the SRM Profiler Web service before the change will take effect. To restart the SRM Profiler Web service do the following:

  • Windows: Run services.msc and restart the SolarWinds SRM Profiler Web Services service
  • Linux: From the Command Line Interface, type: /etc/init.d/storage_manager_server restart webserver

Open the SRM Profiler Web server in a web browser referencing your new port assignment.
