The ServiceManager and Agents have to be installed on Servers which are used normally for special applications. The applications are using their defined port ranges. Sometimes in case a UC4-Agent and SMGR have to be installed also on that servers, it could be we get a port range conflict. For installing an SMGR and Agent we use of course standard scripts. In case of conflicts we have to adapt the inifiles manually. In case of a huge count of agents the manually effort can be very high. Also to automate updates, monitoring and so on it is also a big challenge in case of different ports.
Therefore it would be very helpful if Broadcom request a port range for their components at Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA).
