How to find out Websphere Administration ports

When you install several Websphere profiles on your Machine, each installation will use a port offset in order to avoid conflicts between the server instances. The reverse side of the coin is that you might forget or lose the Websphere administration port used in each Profile. That’s not a big issue; you can find out the correct administration port in two ways:

1. By inspecting the endpoint addresses are which stored in <WAS_ROOT>/config/cells/<your cell>/nodes/<node name>/serverindex.xml.

2. By opening the Profile installation log which is located in the <PROFILE_ROOT>/logs/AboutThisProfile.txt. This file contains all the ports used by your profile.
