Issue/Introduction

Problem:

Started CA CSM but unable to access the CA CSM UI. Looking at the MSMTC task output, the following messages can be found.

SEVERE: Error initializing endpoint                                           

java.net.BindException: EDC5111I Permission denied. <null>:22120

 

Cause:

In the above messages, we can see a "Permission denied" for 22120, where in this case 22120 is the defined CA CSM server port number. In most cases, this error is an indication that the port number is reserved for another task. Issue TSO command netstat,portlist or OMVS command onestat -o to display what port numbers are reserved and for what job names. Port numbers are reserved in the TCPIP PROFILE.

Following is an example of the results of a netstat,portlist command. Take note how the job name/user associated with port# 22120 does not match the actual name of the CA CSM task being started.
 
EZZ2350I MVS TCP/IP NETSTAT CS V2R1       TCPIP Name: TCPIP  
EZZ2795I Port# Prot User     Flags    Range       IP Address 
EZZ2796I ----- ---- ----     -----    -----       ---------- 
EZZ2797I 21    TCP  OMVS     DA
EZZ2797I 25    TCP  SMTP     DA
...
EZZ2797I 22120 TCP  MSM     DA

 

Resolution:

Update the TCPIP PROFILE file as needed and dynamically refresh the TCPIP PROFILE using the following command.

v tcpip,,o,sys1.tcpparms(profilex)
