I have server which is built using orbacus library.The server runs on the port 30015.
It has been in use since 6-7 years but recently it started showing problem.after a restarted suddenly server fails to initialize itself.After analysis I found BOA_init method is failing COMM_FAILURE:WSAEADDRINUSE.
I ran netstat
netstat -aon | findstr 30015
TCP 0.0.0.0:30015 0.0.0.0 LISTENING 6740
When I search this process in task manager, there is no such process.
When I try to kill the process using following command
taskkill /PID 6740
Output:It say no process exists
I downloaded a utility called currports to see the status of the port.It is showing 30015 is occupied by a process called "System".There is not binary attached with the process.30015 Port status is listening
My question what causes the port to go in such state.How to release this port so that server can restart.
