Server Identifier


Used to identify and describe a server. The server identifier is used in the naming of the server jobs and objects, and is supported by the server start and end commands. The server ID must be unique for each server starting on the AS/400. The ID can be up to 7 characters in length and can only contain alphabetic and numeric characters.

If a server ID is not specified, the server creates a server ID based on the server's port. The HTTP socket port is used in the creation of the server ID unless the server is only running SSL, in which case the SSL socket port is used. For example, if the default port of 80 is being used the server ID would be 80xx. The xx characters uniquely identify the server processing on the port. When the server is started with multihome disabled, the xx characters are always spaces. When multihome is enabled, the xx characters range from 'A ' to 'ZZ'. The xx characters will always be the same for a specific IP address.
