Hi, Im a newbie to Progress administration. We're running Progress 9.1E on W2K3 server. We have several progress databases running simultaniously, and im having serious trouble getting new databases up and running because of port problems. I've searched info from Progress knowledgebase and progress suggests that i should use netstat -na to get a list of which ports are in use (which arent on the list should be available). OK, i've checked that, for example port 4015 is not in use, but everytime i try to start the database i get the following error: "Error in startup of database localhost:20931:659. Message: 16:46:40 BROKER : ‘’ This process terminated with exit code 1 (8619( JUNMsg024) " The log from the database displays the same information. Tue Jan 08 16:46:38 2008 16:46:38 BROKER 0: Multi-user session begin. (333) 16:46:38 BROKER 0: Begin Physical Redo Phase at 256 . (5326) 16:46:39 BROKER 0: Physical Redo Phase Completed at blk 374 off 5027 upd 3537. (7161) 16:46:39 BROKER 0: The port 4015 is already in use. (785) 16:46:39 BROKER 0: Begin normal shutdown (2248) 16:46:40 BROKER : Multi-user session end. (334) Im hitting my head against a wall here, i've used 1,5 hours just to find a free port which is really annoying. Is there something very simple im missing here or does progress somehow reserve more ports than one for TCP port 4015. Please help!
