We have multiple databases running on a single server. I have duplicate interfaces on each database.
If we're doing testing in copy #1, the interfaces should be running in that copy. I want to block analysts who try to start the interfaces in copy #2.
So, I'm looking for something that would check the port and tell me the status: already in use or free.
My challenge is that this system needs to stay ISO/ANSI compliant.... so I can't use any of the newer tricks.
Is there any plain-old Cache' I could use for this task?
