Updates are not applied to the StorageServer and MirrorServer when the Storage Platform is upgraded. The logs will display errors along the lines of:
07:06:52.465 (00000000.8) Info: SSCommsManager: Registering host services
07:06:52.543 (00000000.8) Error: SPCommsManager: Unable to start listener on 10.10.1.39:443: Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network address/port) is normally permitted
07:06:52.575 (00000000.8) Error: SPCommsManager: Could not start IP server on port 443
Possible cause: Another service or application is already binding to port 443
Try the following: Stop any service or applications like IIS or Skype that might be binding to port 443
07:06:52.575 (00000000.8) Error: SPService: Unable to start server: Service Hosting Error
Windows allows only one usage of each port at a time.
You can fix this by modifying the values below:
1. Dynamic port range: The max by default is 5000. You can set this up to 65534.
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\MaxUserPort is the key to use.
2. Once the connection does get into an TIME_WAIT state, you can reduce the time it is in that state. The default is four minutes, but you can set this to 30 seconds.
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\TCPTimedWaitDelay is the key to use.
