The EUM processor fails to start if provided with port 7003 for the EUM processor, even though the port seems free using the following command:
netstat -an | grep 7003
The issue is due to port 7003 being used internally as the admin port. This configuration is defined in the local-eum-processor.yml file within the <EUMHome>/eum-processor/conf directory:
- type: http
Therefore, there will be a conflict for this port when the process is starting up. The processor will fail and show a net bind exception in the logs.
Use a different port for EUM HTTP/HTTPS other than 7003, or change the YAML configuration file to select a different port for internal use of EUM.
