Primera Infosight port and domain requirements

Hello everyone, quick question here.

What ports and DNS names / IP addresses should be opened from Primera in order to connect to Infosight? We know that the port 443 is needed, however it is required for us to open only specific DNS names / IP addresses, not the whole internet.

Also should Nimble array itself access Infosight or SSMC?

Re: Primera Infosight port and domain requirements

I'll let someone else answer the Primera part of your question.

A Nimble has three outbound addresses: The group management and the two controller diagnostic addresses. All three need outbound TCP firewall ports to :

  • TCP 2222 hogan.nimblestorage.com — For a Secure Tunnel connection to Nimble Storage Support
  • TCP 443 nsdiag.nimblestorage.com — For Diagnostic Analysis and heartbeat
  • TCP 443 nsalerts.nimblestorage.com — Array alerts
  • TCP 443 update.nimblestorage.com — For software updates and downloads
  • TCP 443 nsstats.nimblestorage.com — Streaming Statistics & VMVision Per-VM Alerts

If making one-to-one ports, fifteen (3 by 5) in total.

Hello @Sheldon Smith 

Thank you for the answer, unfortunately Nimble firewall requirements are not what I am looking for.

Information on Primera is nowhere to be found (unlike for Nimble).

Found an HPE document explaining all the requirements for Infosight connectivity. It can be found here.
