You can change the vSphere 5.1 Web Client Frontend port post-install by editing the following config file on the Web Client server:

C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\vSphereWebClient\server\config\tomcat-server.xml


Find the entry below and edit the port accordingly:

<Connector port="9443" protocol="HTTP/1.1" SSLEnabled="true" maxThreads="500" scheme="https" [...]

Restart the Web Client service afterwards for the change to take effect.

It should be similar to this by editing a tomcat XML config file. I don't know where exactly this file is located on the vCenter appliance since I don't have one to check, but you can search for it like this from the shell:

grep -r 9443 /etc/


I think it's the file in /etc/vmware-vpx/tomcat-java-opts.cfg, but I'm not too sure about that.

Sorry for resurrecting an old thread but my server.xml file doesnt have any reference to 9443

I have a file called Catalina.Properties, which references port 9443

Any ideas why I dont see the port in server.xml?

Thanks,

Are you using the Windows vCenter or the VCSA? And which version?

It's possible they just changed it between versions or Windows/VCSA vCenter.

If the config entry sounds anything like listener socket, then this is probably it.
