Directory Service Control Center, DSCC, is a web application for Sun Java Web Console that enables you to administer Directory Server and Directory Proxy Server instances through a web browser. For a server to be recognized by DSCC, the server must be registered with DSCC. Unregistered servers can still be managed using command-line utilities.
DSCC communicates with DSCC agents located on the systems where servers are installed. The DSCC agents run inside a common agent container, which routes network traffic to them and provides them a framework in which to run.
If you plan to use DSCC to administer servers in your topology, identify the following port numbers.
The encrypted HTTPS port for accessing DSCC through Sun Java Web Console on the system where DSCC is installed. The default port is 6789.
The management traffic port for DSCC to access its agents local to the server through the common agent container, default: 11162, on the system where the server instances are installed.
The port numbers for the DSCC Registry instance, if you plan to replicate the configuration information. See dsccsetup(1M) for details.
Even if all components are installed on the same system, DSCC still communicates with its agents through these network ports.
