Issue/Introduction

It is necessary to change the port numbers for large amount of virtual services, then planned to change the port numbers for deployed virtual services in VSE  by a batch tool with these steps:

  1. Download the .mar file from the Portal
  2. Change the file extension from .mar to .zip which was downloaded in step 1 and extract the archive
  3. Change the HTTP listener port directory from extracted .vsm file(by a text editor)
  4. Archive the extracted folder in step 2 and change the file extension from .zip to .mar
  5. Upload the .mar file from the Portal

By checking one .mar file with these steps manually, it seems OK. But are these steps supported?

Environment

Release : All Versions

Component : CA Service Virtualization

Resolution

No, Editing vsm file by text editor and creating mar file by zip utilities(like winzip or jar command) are not supported usages.

It is necessary to use DevTest Components for editing .vsm file and creating .mar file.
