Delete the Internet Protocol Version 4 or the Internet Protocol Version 6 multicast port

We can delete the Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPv4) or the Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) for multicast ports so that the node agent runs more efficiently.

We must install the WAS Network Deployment product before we can delete a multicast port.

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.

(dist) To delete one of the multicast ports using the console, perform these steps:

(iseries) To delete the IPv6 multicast port using the Administrative Console, perform these steps:

  1. Click System administration > Node agentsnode_agent > Ports.

  2. On the Ports page, delete a multicast port.

    (dist) Select either NODE_MULTICAST_DISCOVERY_ADDRESS to delete IPv4 or NODE_IPV6_MULTICAST_DISCOVERY_ADDRESS to delete IPv6.

    (iseries) Select NODE_IPV6_MULTICAST_DISCOVERY_ADDRESS to delete IPv6.

  3. Click Delete.


Results

(dist) You deleted either IPv4 or IPv6.

(iseries) You deleted IPv6.


What to do next

We can continue to administer the WAS Network Deployment product by doing such tasks as managing nodes, node agents, and node groups.
