Issue/Introduction

Issue:

During the startup of the System Agent, I get a message "Address already in use"

It happens during the activation of the FTP plugin and the agent shutdown

Environment: 

System Agent 11.3 on AS400 server

Cause:

The startup of the FTP plugin was set in the agentpatm.txt file with option "plugins.start_internal_7=ftp"

But the other specific FTP  parameters were not defined

 

Therefore the System Agent activated the FTP plugin as an FTP server with its default port which was already in use because a native FTP server was already running on the i5 server

 

 Resolution:

Depending on your needs, configure the System Agent to act as:

1)          1) No FTP server/client by removing the "plugins.start_internal_x=ftp" option

         2) An FTP client by setting option ftp.noserver=true

1)          3) An  FTP server by setting

a.       option ftp.noserver=false

b.   option ftp.serverport=<any available port>
