Changes the port for the O&M protocol on one or more hosts.

Usage notes

You can call this operation to change the port for the O&M protocol on one or more hosts. If the standard port for the O&M protocol on your host is vulnerable to attacks, you can call this operation to specify a custom port. For example, the standard port for SSH is port 22.

Note Ports 0 to 1024 are reserved for Bastionhost. Do not change the port for the O&M protocol to a reserved port.

QPS limit

You can call this operation up to 10 times per second per account. If the number of the calls per second exceeds the limit, throttling is triggered. As a result, your business may be affected. We recommend that you take note of the limit when you call this operation.

Debugging

OpenAPI Explorer automatically calculates the signature value. For your convenience, we recommend that you call this operation in OpenAPI Explorer. OpenAPI Explorer dynamically generates the sample code of the operation for different SDKs.
