LSFCT Update – LID Port Already Used

, ,

When performing an update of Lawson Core Technology, you may come across the error “LID port xxx already used”. If your services are stopped, and you know nothing is listening on the LID port, you may have to temporarily change the port to get the install to complete.

To change the port, open the command line as administrator and set the environment variables. Then, type the command “laconfig” to open the configuration screen. Change the “lalogin Port” to some other port that isn’t being used. Click “Apply” and “OK”. Continue with the technology update.

After the technology update, go back into laconfig. The port should have been set back automatically (based on the install.cfg file). If it isn’t, you can set it back manually.
