I am new to an existing large environment....there are numerous systems here with cdm and logmon failing to start with the following:

 

Mar  9 18:20:27:721 [139898666776352] logmon: sockServer: next available port is 48012
Mar  9 18:20:27:721 [139898666776352] logmon: sockServer: bind failed 98
Mar  9 18:20:27:721 [139898666776352] logmon: nimSession - failed to create server session on port 0, error code 98
Mar  9 18:20:27:721 [139898666776352] logmon: nimSession failed

 

There seems to be a problem using any port above 48012, and also 48003-48006 are skipped on most systems.

Besides firewall blocks and other programs using these ports, is there any other reason these might fail?

At what point does the controller quit looking for a new port for a probe when attempts to connect to them fail?
