Is AIX's portmapper service a requirement for IBM FileNet Image Services?

Technote (FAQ)


Does IBM Image Services require the AIX portmapper service to be enabled?


The AIX operating system has a service called portmapper running by default. This service listens on port 111 for incoming RPC requests, and maps them to the correct application.


No, IBM Image Services is not an RPC server, and portmapper can be safely disabled.

Note: Ensure that no applications require this service before making any changes to it.
