Novell Teaming is installed.
Novell iManager is installed.



If the Tomcat default page

"If you're seeing this page via a web browser, it means you've setup Tomcat successfully. Congratulations!"

 is displayed when expecting to see the initial Teaming page.


Also the Catalina.out shows:

Jun 13, 2008 2:24:56 PM org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11BaseProtocol init

SEVERE: Error initializing endpoint

java.net.BindException: Address already in use:8080


If both iManager and Teaming are needed on the same server, it is possible to change the ports:

To change the Teaming ports:

/opt/icecore/liferay-portal-tomcat-5.5-jdk5-4.3.0/bin/icecore stop

Run install and select reconfigure, then select advanced and enter different ports.

/opt/icecore/liferay-portal-tomcat-5.5-jdk5-4.3.0/bin/icecore start

To change the iManager ports:

/etc/init.d/novell-tomcat5 stop

Change the ports in the /var/opt/novell/tomcat5/conf/server.xml file.

/etc/init.d/novell-tomcat5 start

Additional Information

Root Cause:
iManager installation defaults to port 8080.   The iManagers tomcat instance captures port 8080 before the Teaming instance of tomcat loads
