By default, the replication server binds the listening ports to all available interfaces
of the machine. To bind the listener to a specific address, the address must be the host
name provided when replication is enabled and the
listen-on-all-addresses property must be set to
The replication server’s configuration entry already stores a host name for itself so
that it can resolve the address and specify it during the socket bind. If the server
information is missing from the system, an error message will be generated with
instructions on specific address binding. You can use the dsconfig
tool to change the value of the
listen-on-all-addresses property from
TRUE (default) to FALSE.
To configure a replication server to listen on a single address:
- Create a new directory serverinstance with replication enabled on port 8989.
Run netstat to see the ports bound for listening on port 8989.
Notice that *.8989 means that it is listening on all addresses.
$ netstat -an | grep LISTEN | grep 8989
Run dsconfig to disable listening on all addresses for the
$ bin/dsconfig set-replication-server-prop \ --provider-name "Multimaster Synchronization" \ --set listen-on-all-addresses:false
Run netstat again to see the ports bound for listening on port
8989. Notice that
<address>.8989(for example, 10.8.1.211.8989) means that it is listening on the one address.
