VMware: Address already in use: JVM_Bind

Today I got some trouble with VMware Infrastructure Web Access, when I start the service he unexpectedly stops every time. After searching on even id 7034 I found some information about Tomcat. When opening some logfiles I saw this errors:

13-sep-2010 10:11:26 org.apache.catalina.core.StandardServer await
SEVERE: StandardServer.await: create[8005]: Address already in use: JVM_Bind

There is a conflict with your default Tomcat port, change the port and bring your webservices online again. To resolve this issue you need to change the port in the server configfile located:

C:\Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\VirtualCenter Server\tomcat\conf\server.xml


Change the port from 8005/tcp to 8006/tcp (whatever you want) and start your service. The service won’t crash anymore
