Specify Client Connection Information

You need to specify thin client connection properties to avoid port conflicts at boot time.

By default, the GemFire XD server that you start with the gfxd server command supports connectivity to thin client applications over a unique bind address and port number combination. If you do not specify an address and port, the server binds to the default address (usually localhost) on port 1527. Because each server must bind to a unique address and port combination, you should specify the exact client connection properties to use at boot time to avoid port conflicts. For example:
gfxd server start -dir=./server1 -client-bind-address=localhost -client-port=1528
As an alternative, you can disable network services if you do not need to support thin client connections to the server:
gfxd server start -dir=./server1 -run-netserver=false
