Set AIE 7.6.04 up on its own RPC Port

To set AIE onto its own RPC Port, you will need to add in a new RPC port number to the ARSystem, update the aie.cfg file, and restart the ARServer and AIE services so that the changes can take effect. By putting AIE onto its own port number, this helps to prevent the rest of the system from experiencing performance issues when your AIE jobs are running.

The steps to complete this task are as follows (the following steps are under Linux/Unix):

  1. Open the AR System Administration Console and navigate to Server Information.
  2. Change to the Ports and Queues tab.
  3. In the table, locate an empty line and enter in an RPC Prog Number, Min Threads, and Max Threads values.
  4. Apply the changes.
  5. From the server, stop AIE and the ARServer.
  6. Navigate to where the aie.cfg file is located and open it up in a text editor. If you used the default install, this should be located at:
    • /opt/bmc/AtriumCore/aie/service/conf/aie.cfg
  7. Part way down you should see a section for “PrivateRPCPort:”. On this line, add in the RPC port you defined above.
  8. Save your changes.
  9. Restart your ARServer. You had to do the stop/start in order for the new port numbers to take effect.
  10. Restart you AIE instance. It will start up using the new details.
