VMware Port Configuration Problem. Don’t know what to use.

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

VMware experts I need help! I was running through steps on the setup of VMware when under Configure Ports an error just popped up. It says Port: 80 is invalid or already in use.

The note also has this range of numbers 1-65535, 389-636 and 1025-65535. If it is invalid, 80 sure is in-between 1-65535 but not on the other ranges and if it is in use how do I know who is using Port 80?

The Following port numbers are either invalid or already in use.

VMware VirtualCenter HTTP Port: 80

Note:

The vCenter Server ports must be in [1 – 65535] range.

We The LDAP and SSL ports For the Directory Services instance must be 389 and 636 respectively or in the range of [1025 – 65535].

OK

Thanks,

Jose

The above error is quite common if the port is already being used by any other ports.

You can actually do one thing to verify which all ports are being used in your system.

Use the below command which will list the ports being used by your system.

C:Users>netstat

Active Connections

Proto  Local Address          Foreign Address        State

TCP    127.0.0.1:12080        Administrator:60389    ESTABLISHED

TCP    127.0.0.1:12080        Administrator:60703    ESTABLISHED

TCP    127.0.0.1:12080        Administrator:60773    ESTABLISHED

TCP    127.0.0.1:12080        Administrator:60806    ESTABLISHED

TCP    127.0.0.1:12080        Administrator:60818    ESTABLISHED

TCP    127.0.0.1:12080        Administrator:62481    ESTABLISHED

TCP    127.0.0.1:12080        Administrator:62554    ESTABLISHED

The output will be something like above.

In the above screen shot which you have shared you can actually change the port that can be utilized by the program. Change the port number to some other number between 1-65536 and check.

This should work.

Virtualization software or VMware recommends utilizing VLAN technology to establish dedicated Subnet for ESX/EXI management, VMotion network traffic.

This type of problem can happen when channel group mode is on.

First thing you have to do is, verify your native vlan. Using vlan 1 and verify again.

Hope, it will help you.
