Changing the Rational Build Agent port on z/OS systems

You can change the server port after the agent is installed.

If you install the agent on a server where port 5555 is already occupied, you can change the agent port after it is installed.

To change the port:

  1. Modify the port value in your bfagent.conf file.
  2. If you are running a stand-alone server (that is, you started with the bfagent -s or bfagent -f command), you can use the kill command to stop the current bfagent process and restart using the command you used to start the agent the first time.
  3. If you are running using inetd, you also must modify your port setting in the /etc/services file and restart inetd.
  4. If you are running the agent as a started task, you must stop and restart the started task.
