Changing Primary Port

I have a HP-UX 11x system running NNM. I am unable to traceroute to target systems. I found via netstat that the port being used is not the primary port. How do I change the current port to the primary port?

Any help is appreciated.

Re: Changing Primary Port

perhaps this can be done

hi
can see by adding route to those HostIps or NEtwork IPs using route add command


#route add host 1

#route add net 1


Source LAN IP addr can be substituted by the lan0 or lan1 IP Address of the system by which the destination is reqd to reach

Will this make a permanent change? That is what I am looking for.

Re: Changing Primary Port

Hi



there are actually 2 ways to do that:


in the file /etc/rc.config.d/netconf
take the help of the variables
ROUTE_DESTINATION[n] -- for the dstiation to be reached
and
ROUTE_GATEWAY[n] --- the IP Address from which the Route Destination has to be reached.
ROUTE_COUNT[n]=1 --- set to 1
in the file /etc/rc.config.d/netconf

start for the number n if not used earlier ans can go on incrementing that for the pair of the ROUTE_DESTINATION and the ROUTE_GATEWAY and the ROUTE_COUNT Entries.


can have a look at the following thread. Also can see Stephenson's post.

Re: Changing Primary Port

@Sujit: ...adding route...

Not sure why you are suggesting to add routes to his server. His question is about the actual PORT being used by NNM. I am guessing the port that NNM is using to comunicate with its agents is not set to the default one.

> the port being used is not the primary port

Perhaps some more details are needed here as well.

Re: Changing Primary Port

I think this question is for a HP-UX system administrator. When I get in to work tomorrow I will run the ntstat and show what port is being used now and which port I want to make the primary one.

Re: Changing Primary Port

I have found a system admin within the organization who will fix the issue. It seems it could be related to Service Guard.

Thanks for the help.
