1201170 - Desktop Intelligence servers not honoring -requestport command line parameter


Multiple instances of each executable are generated for each server process, but only one instance of each uses the specified ports. Other instances appear to choose random ports.
Steps to duplicate:
  1. From CCM, stop the Desktop Intelligence Report, Job and Cache servers.
  2. For each server, add the -requestport command line parameter with a specific port >1024, ex. 60006, 60007, 60008.
  3. Restart the servers.
  4. Check the Task Manager, there should be multiple instances for each of the associated executables.
  5. Open a command window, run the following command NETSTAT -a -b to generate a current connections listing.
  6. The NETSTAT list will show the DeskI procs communicating on ports other than those specified in -requestport.
