Migrated a vcenter server from 6.0 windows/SQL to 6.5 appliance/embedded. The migration assistant was throwing an error for port 80. Seems the SQL Report Manager had grabbed port 80 in the original config and vcenter had used port 81. We modified the SQL port and changed vcenter 6.0 back to port 80 to continue with the migration.
Prior to migration the 8.1 replication appliance was using port 81 for the 6.0 vcenter server. Now it's causing errors.
Is there a command line method of modifying this to port 80 without reinstalling/reconfiguring the replications?
You could try to unregister the vSR Appliace and register it once again on vCenter's port 80.
Check if there're any contraindications first.
Thanks for the reply.
The vami configuration is showing the VRM service as stopped. Using the correct lookupservice hostname and SSO credentials, a Save and Restart will timeout on the "Verifying LookupServices SSL certificate" and throw a red error "Unable to obtain SSL certificate: org.apache.http.conn.HttpHostConnectException: Connect to 'myhostname':81 ['myhostname'/'myipaddress'] failed: Connection timed out (Connection timed out) "
An Unregister attempt will throw a red error "The appliance has to be configured correctly for unregister to work".
You can try to manually unregister vSR Appliance
Found the xml replication configuration file vSphere Replication Configuration Files and changed port 81 to 80.
The change appeared in vami on next logon.
Did a 'Save and Restart Service' and the VRM service started.
After a 'Reconfigure Site Pair' in Site Recovery, everything is good so far.
Great! This was the last resort and I've kept this at the end, because it demands testing and is rather undocumented.
Thank You for your answer. This could help someone in the future.
Have a nice day!
