Weblogic Node Manager Uses 5556 Port Even After Changing Port Number in Configuration Files and Weblogic Console Shows Node Manager as "Inactive" (Doc ID 2635068.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 08, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version and later
Generic Windows


After creating the Node Manager as a Windows service, when Node Manager is started it always uses port 5556 even though all config files are changed to have new port number.

Due to this, Node Manager is shown as "Inactive" in Weblogic Console, though it is up and running .

If Node Manager is started using startNodeManager.cmd command, new port gets picked up.
