What Do You Need to Know about Ports Used During an Oracle Implementation?

When you install Oracle, the Oracle universal installer matches port numbers to components using a set of defaults. To facilitate this process and to avoid errors during installation, administrators need to know the port numbers used by the installer. Otherwise, you may inadvertently use the same port number for two services.

When port numbers are assigned during an Oracle installation, each service and component has a port range assigned to it. Oracle Database tries to use numbers in this range to assign a port. It starts with the lowest range number and then checks for the following:

  • Is that port number already in use by Oracle database on the host?
  • Is another running process currently using the port? This includes any process, not just Oracle database-related ones.
  • Is the evaluated port in the /etc/services files?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, Oracle Database goes to the next highest port in the range until it finds one that’s free.

How Can Your View the Port Numbers?

The Oracle database component port number can be found in the component used when configuring the port. Also, you can find some ports listed in the portlist.ini file within $ORACLE_HOME/install directory.

Once you update a port number, it’s not updated within the portlist.ini file. So, that source is only reliable immediately after the installation is complete.

What Ports are Needed to Connect Net Applications to the Oracle Database?

Oracle’s documentation is the best source for identifying these ports, which can be found in the information related to ports needed to connect net application to Oracle Database.
