Delete the Internet Protocol V4 or the Internet Protocol Version 6 multicast port
This topic describes how to delete the Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPv4) or the Internet Protocol V6 (IPv6) for multicast ports so that the node agent runs more efficiently.
Before you beginYou must install the WAS Network Deployment product before you can delete a multicast port.
About this task
To allow node installation to run out-of-the box, both IPv4 and IPv6 are initially defined in the node agent configuration. To make the node agent run more efficiently, delete the multicast port that the node is not using.
To delete one of the multicast ports using the administrative console, perform these steps:
- Click System Administration > Node Agents.
- Select the node agent.
- On the next panel, under Additional Properties, select Ports.
The next panel shows a list of existing ports.
- Delete a multicast port.
Select either NODE_MULTICAST_DISCOVERY_ADDRESS to delete IPv4 or NODE_IPV6_MULTICAST_DISCOVERY_ADDRESS to delete IPv6.
- Click Delete.
You deleted either IPv4 or IPv6.
What to do nextYou can continue to administer your Network Deployment product by doing such tasks as managing nodes, node agents, and node groups.
