just this little tip for today. My colleague configured a test farm a while ago and let the wizard choose the port to be used for the Central Admin webapplication. I don’t know why, but every time I have seen this you get a hideous port from the wizard. So I changed the port to my preferred port number by using the following command:
Stsadm –o setadminport –port 5555
and that’s it. Nothing else to do, no restart, no iisreset, just this command.
I found this info on Shane young’s blog. Thanks for sharing Shane !
