SDM 14.1 - Port Connection between Browser and Secondary Server

one of our customer allows only SSL (port 443)  communication between the web browser and the
secondary Server. IIS WEB-Server is the only allowed WEB-Server.


SDM requires some ports for special functions (tomcat process - exporter and attachments, tomcat process -
Visualizer, WEB-Service communication, …)

We solved this issue with the IISAPI filter (isapi_redirect.dll). This filter redirects the SSL communication
to the tomcat process. 


It is necessary  to activate the AJP connector:

- bopcfg\www\CATALINA_BASE\conf\server.xml

- bopcfg\www\CATALINA_BASE\conf\server.xml



    <Connector port="8009" protocol="AJP/1.3" redirectPort="8443"></Connector>


Our Problem:

This configuration works fine. After every pdm_configure SDM overwrites this connector setting with the default port (8080).


Is it possible to change this behavior?

Maybe someone knows a better solution for our requirement.


Thanks very much
