Changing MC or Agent Ports

When you configure MC, the Configuration Wizard sets up the following default ports:

  • 5450—Used to connect a web browser session to MC and allows communication from Vertica cluster nodes to the MC application/web server
  • 5444—Provides MC-to-node and node-to-node (agent) communications for database create/import and monitoring activities

If You Need to Change the MC Default Ports

A scenario might arise where you need to change the default port assignments for MC or its agents. For example, perhaps one of the default ports is not available on your Vertica cluster, or you encounter connection problems between MC and the agents. The following topics describe how to change port assignments for MC or its agents.
