Change the port on which the server group is listening

To change the port, edit the server group. For example, run the following command:

 az postgres server-arc update -n <server name> --port <desired port number> --k8s-namespace <namespace> --use-k8s

If the name of your server group is postgres01 and you would like it to listen on port 866. Run the following command:

 az postgres server-arc update -n postgres01 --port 866 --k8s-namespace arc --use-k8s

Verify that the port was changed

To verify that the port was changed, run the following command to show the configuration of your server group:

az postgres server-arc show -n <server name> --k8s-namespace <namespace> --use-k8s

In the output of that command, look at the port number displayed for the item "port" in the "service" section of the specifications of your server group.

Alternatively, you can verify in the item externalEndpoint of the status section of the specifications of your server group that the IP address is followed by the port number you configured.

As an illustration, to continue the example above, run the command:

az postgres server-arc show -n postgres01 --k8s-namespace arc --use-k8s

The command return port 866:

"services": {
      "primary": {
        "port": 866,
        "type": "LoadBalancer"
      }
    }

In addition, note the value for primaryEndpoint.

"primaryEndpoint": "12.345.67.890:866",
