This issue may occur when you try to rerun the installation process by using the Psconfig.exe command-line tool after an initial installation of FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint was not completed successfully.
To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
  1. On the FAST node, create the following command, and then save this document as "Cleanup_FAST_default_ports.cmd."

  2. Log on as a FAST user to the server that is running FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint.
  3. Start Windows PowerShell as an elevated user. To do this, right-click Windows PowerShell, and then click Run as administrator.
  4. Run the Cleanup_FAST_default_ports.cmd file that you created in step 1.
  5. Run the post-setup configuration wizard.
