I am trying to start a PASOE instance on our development server.
The service fails with the following message in catalina.out
SEVERE [main] org.apache.catalina.core.StandardServer.await StandardServer.await: create[localhost:8005]: java.net.BindException: Address already in use
This port does not appear in any of the config files, but I determined that JIRA is already using that port. If I shut down JIRA, the PASOE instance starts with no problem.
What is port 8005 used for and how can I change it?

On the OpenEdge Explorer screen it asks for a shutdown port, but it has a note that reads:
NOTE: A value for shutdown port is only required on Windows. Specify -1 for the shutdown port to disable it.
So I set it to -1. But that does not seem to work, so I changed it to something else and now everything works fine.
Make a grep for configuration
tcman.sh config | grep 8005
What will be found?

It finds nothing.
I suspect this port some default is used by the Tomcat underlying the PASOE and JIRA.
Yes, this is the shutdown port for Tomcat. Standart ports for tomcat is 8005, 8080, 8009.
so it's strange to me that you did not find 8005 port in the configuration of your PAS instance.
How did you create your instance?
Valeriy Bashkatov I specified -1 as the shutdown port, since the note on the config page says it is only needed on Windows and can be set to -1 to disable it. So my config had -1, yet tomcat still used 8005, so I think the note is wrong.
I just created through OE Management two instances of PAS on CentOS 7 without a shutdown port (-1) and started them without problems . I use OpenEdge 11.7.1.
What version do you use?
