How to select securidprop port designations in RSA ACE/Server
ResolutionHere is an annotated example:

RSA ACE/Server and Authentication Manager Services file configuration:

Authentication Port
securid                 5500/udp        # ACE/Server and Authentication Manager installation

If there is an existing securidprop value in the /etc/services file during an upgrade, the services will be configured to begin at that value, usually 5510. In that case, adding a tenth replica will cause a conflict on port 5520 with sdlog. Problems may occur if your services file is hand-modified to reflect the starting value of 5505 and you have already performed an upgrade with a value of 5510 in the services file. You must run the replication management utility and change each port designation there. On UNIX "sdsetup -repmgmt modify".

securidprop_00         5505/tcp        securidprop          # acesyncd for primary, replica 0
securidprop_01        5506/tcp                # acesyncd for replica 1
securidprop_02        5507/tcp                # acesyncd for replica 2
securidprop_03        5508/tcp                # acesyncd for replica 3
securidprop_04        5509/tcp                # acesyncd for replica 4
securidprop_05        5510/tcp                # acesyncd for replica 5
securidprop_06        5511/tcp                # acesyncd for replica 6
securidprop_07        5512/tcp                # acesyncd for replica 7
securidprop_08        5513/tcp                # acesyncd for replica 8
securidprop_09        5514/tcp                # acesyncd for replica 9
securidprop_10        5515/tcp                # acesyncd for replica 10
