LongReach iSeries Jobs Not Running

Post by nic.hall@lansa.com » Tue Feb 02, 2016 1:46 am

LongReach jobs JSMJOB01 and STRLONG are ending immediately when the subsystem is started.
The trace file STDERR.txt contains the following messages;

java.net.BindException: The socket name is already in use.
at java.net.PlainSocketImpl.socketBind(PlainSocketImpl.java:587)
at java.net.PlainSocketImpl.bind(PlainSocketImpl.java:444)

LongReach uses port 6563 which the customer has monitored and states "We have been checking port 6563 on the iSeries and have not seen any t raffic on that port."

java.net.BindException: The socket name is already in use.

This error occurs because another Socket Server listener is using the same port.

The ports reserved for LONGREACH are:

6560 JSM
6561 Studio/COnsole
6563 HTTP
6564 HTTPS

A default install, normally uses 6560, 6561 and 6563.

Determine the ports being used by the LONGREACH server, refer to system/manager.properties.


Determine the port being used by the LONGREACH server, refer to system/httpd.xml

<listen port="6563" sslport="6564" interface="*ALL" secure="false" .... />

Use the NETSTAT command to view current connections and find if the these ports are being used.
