How do I change the Controller’s port when not discovered in the Enterprise Console?

To change the Controller from default port 8090 to an open HTTP port, make the following changes to file <controller>\appserver\glassfish\domains\domain1\config\domain.xml.

  1. Search for the following:
    <network-listener port="8090" protocol="http-listener-1" enabled="true" transport="tcp" name="http-listener-1" thread-pool="http-thread-pool"></network-listener>

  2. Edit it, replacing the former port=”8090” with the new port details, as shown below, where <new-port> contains the new port details. 
    <network-listener port="<new-port>" protocol="http-listener-1" enabled="true" transport="tcp" name="http-listener-1" thread-pool="http-thread-pool"></network-listener> 

  3. In the same file<controller>\appserver\glassfish\domains\domain1\config\domain.xml 
    replace all occurrences of 8090 with the new port number.

  4. Restart the Controller app server using the relevant commands, from the steps below:


    <Controller_Home>/bin/controller.bat stop-appserver 
    <Controller_Home>/bin/controller.bat start-appserver 


    <Controller_Home>/bin/ stop-appserver 
    <Controller_Home>/bin/ start-appserver 

  5. After restarting the app server, access the Controller using the new port in the URL. 

    Example: http://<controller_hostname>:<new_port>/controller 

    Replace <controller_hostname> with the hostname of the controller and <new_port> with the new port number.
