ASAP Static Ports Overlap With Ephemeral Ports (Doc ID 2162801.1)

Last updated on JUNE 12, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Communications ASAP - Version 7.2.0 and later
Linux x86-64

Goal

ASAP static ports overlap with ephemeral ports.

The ports used in ASAP are the ports selected by default during ASAP installation. Additional ports are used while adding multiple NEPs.

ASAP Ports range : 40450 to 40459.
Additional NEPs port range: 48542 to 48547

As per Linux OS, the ephemeral ports range is:

$ cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_port_range

32768 61000


This setup may cause  “Address already in use” error during ASAP startup.

Should we use different ephemeral port range in Linux OS?

Alternatively, should we adjust the ASAP static ports range to avoid the conflict?
