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

Technote (FAQ)


Question

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

Cause

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.

Answer

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.
