If your site blocks or otherwise reserves port 8444, you can change the default proxy port used by VMware Remote Console.


  1. Access the vRealize Automation appliance command prompt as root.
  2. Open the following file in a text editor.


  3. Change consoleproxy.service.port from its default of 8444 to an unused port.
  4. Save and close security.properties.
  5. Restart the vRealize Automation appliance.


In an HA environment, make the same change to all vRealize Automation appliances.
