Symantec NetBackup PureDisk change URL / port / ip address

How to get the puredisk url working on another address.

Login to the server using a putty session and enter the below command

ps -ef | grep java

The result shows us that, it is a tomcat server hosting the webpage.

HOSTNAME:~ # ps -ef | grep java
root     25012 24974  0 10:56 pts/0    00:00:00 grep java
root     29395     1  0 May29 ?        00:00:19 /opt/VRTSjre/jre1.5/bin/java -Dvrtsat.libpath=/opt/VRTSat/lib/x64 -Duuid.libpath=/etc/vx/uuid/bin -Dvrtsweb.home=/opt/VRTSweb -Dvrtsweb.runtime.dir=/var/VRTSweb -Dvrtsweb.log.dir=/var/VRTSweb/log -Dvcs.home=/opt/VRTSvcs -Dvcs.conf=/etc/VRTSvcs -Xmx1024m -Dvrtsweb.max.heap.size=1024 -server -Xrs -Djava.awt.headless=true -Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true -Xms64m -Xss512k vrts.tomcat.bootstrap.Main start

The configuration must have been under /opt/VRTSvcs.
Go to the config folder /opt/VRTSweb/conf

open the file vrtsweb.xml.

# more vrtsweb.xml

<Ports securePortRedirection="false">
                <Port port="8080" protocol="http" address="" />
                <Port port="8009" protocol="ajp"  address="" />

We see that the page can be accessed on ip & ports 8080 & 8009
However is internal to the server.

So edit the file and change it like below:

# vi vrtsweb.xml

<Ports securePortRedirection="false">
                <Port port="8080" protocol="http"                                  />
                <Port port="8009" protocol="ajp"  address="" />

Change the listen address from to all ( earlier the port 8080 was listening to only, now it listens on all ip’s)
You can also change the port here if you want.

save and exit the file and restart the tomcat. (service puredisk restart)

check the ip's the host is configured to using command <ip addr>

The result will show you all the ip's the host is listening on under <inet>

simply access the url on any of the <inet> ip address and port 8080,
for example ip:8080/PureDisk/index.do

If there is an address translation in the server, simply configure a tunnel at your putty, to access it as localhost.

Using AVG protection for a few years now, I would recommend this anti virus to all you.
