Question:  

I am starting up the TOMCAT server for ACFWEB and getting: "java.net.BindException: EDC8116I Address not available.". What can cause this error?

Answer:  

The EDC8116I Address not available message can be a result of the requested socket address is not available to the machine. Either an incorrect socket address was used, or there is a problem at the remote node where the socket address should be.

To determine if the socket address/port is reserved check if SYS1.PARMLIB(BPXPRMxx) contains: 

INADDRANYPORT(starting_port_number) and
INADDRANYCOUNT(number_of_ports_to_reserve)

If the selected socket address/port is in the range INADDRANYPORT + INADDRANYCOUNT, then the socket address/port is reserved. Change INADDRANYPORT + INADDRANYCOUNT or select a different socket address/port for ACFWEB.

To determine if the socket address/port is in use, issue the TSO command netstat (po 4389).

If the socket address/port is available you will see the following:

netstat (po 8080)                                                            
MVS TCP/IP NETSTAT CS V1R12       TCPIP Name: TCPIP           13:18:33      
User Id  Conn     State                                                     
-------  ----     -----                                                     
                                                
  READY       

If the socket address/port is in use you will see display output similar to the following:

netstat (po 8085)
