HP-IRS accessing web sites

Hi

Anyone knows exactly which HP or other web sites that HP-IRS standard version 7.6 needs to have access to?
Also which ports? 

Regards,

Vivek

Hi Vivek,

IRS v7.6 onwards will need access to FQDN api.support.hpe.com via TCP Port 443 (outbound , Connection ack)

You can check the connectivity to HPE IRS DC by accessing the following URL's from the IRS hosting device:

https://api.support.hpe.com/v1/version/ (output will be similar to 17.X.X.XX)

https://api.support.hpe.com/v1/SWM/manifest.xml -- (output will be a XML page)

Re: HP-IRS accessing web sites

Hello sanjay,

well i have made connectivity using alias services.isee.hp.com through IP address. but sometimes it is connected and sometime it loses connection and also it is not able to download package catalog from HPE.

well i read in the document that "All data sent to HPE is through an HTTPS connection to the destination services.isee.hp.com. This destination is a virtual IP address that is automatically routed to an active server in one of the HPE Data Centers. HPE strongly recommends configuring only the alias".

My company uses IP address for connectivity. so is this new alias "api.support.hpe.com" will be helpful and wont be a virtual IP?

Vivek,

This new address is also a virtual ip that points to a load balancer.  So, no different than the current one.

I am an HPE employee.

HPE recommends to use the FQDN address rather then the static IP addresses, HPE  will replicate its Insight Remote Support infrastructure at an additional HPE data center to provide more resilient access for IRS Event Processing. This enhancement uses Global Server Load Balancing (GSLB) to implement redundant access. IF you still need the IP address you can use the "nslookup api.support.hpe.com" command to check the current active IP address.
