When I start JBoss v4.2.3 on my computer I get always an startup error

java.rmi.server.ExportException: Port already in use: 1098

netstat -ano 

shows no other process which is blocking this port.
So I decided to reserve ephemeral ports like described e.g. here:


with a *.reg file like:


However this did not help.


The only way was to change the RmiPort in jboss-service.xml from 1098 to 1198

Why did the Registry patch not help?
Do I have to re-boot for getting the Registry patch be active?

Are there any problems when changing the jboss-service.xml RmiPort?
