In client-server mode (see Modes of Operation), the Web-based System Manager client requests server services from a managed machine through inetd port 9090. Client-server mode needs to be enabled on the servers that are to be managed as remote machines. Enabling and disabling a machine to act as a Web-based System Manager Server can be done through the wsmserver command (see Command Line Tools) as follows:
Note: Client-Server mode is not enabled by default.
To disable a machine so that it cannot be managed from a Web-based System Manager client, run the following command:
If you need to use a port number other than 9090, you can set an alternative port number in the /etc/services file. If this is done, the -port argument would be used with the wsm command (see Command Line Tools).
