Backup Exec NDMP port causes remote agent to fail

While i was installing symantec backup exec 2010 on one of windows server 2008 R2 Hyper-V server i noticed that the remote agent failed to start causing dependent services to fail also, doing some researches i discovered that remote agent services uses by default port 10000 and if it happens that another service is using the same port this will cause the failure of the remote agent service.


you either have to change the port number of the program already using it or change the port of the bakcup exec remote agent. To change the port of the remote agent open notepad with administrator privilages and then open the file located under the following path”c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\services” at the bottom of the page add the folowing

ndmp           anyotherport except10000\tcp   

make sure to press enter to go to a new line before saving the notepad.

try now to start the remote agent service it should start succesfully.

Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
