CMS (HP SIM server)<->Agent-Ports for communication?

Hi,

 

Can anyone tell the ports needed to open from CMS to agent & between agent to CMS?

[Considering the agents lies in domain and outside domain(other domain/workgroup/dmz etc.]

 

Is there is any link/doc supporting the same?

 

Regards

CMS<->Agent-Ports for communication?

Hello,

 

The DDM agent can use one of two TCP/IP ports for communication: 2738 and 7738 (IANA registered).

Re: CMS<->Agent-Ports for communication?

Hi Adrian,

 

Thank you.

What does "DDM" stands for?

 

Do we need to open only these two ports?

 

Do we have any post/link which clearly says specifiy ALL the ports needs (with type of protocol & direction - Uni/bi) to open between CMS & managed server/device?

Hi Rajesh,

 I think we are talking two different things. As Adrian mentioned in earlier update, only those two ports are required.

 

Please confirm, when you say agents which agents you are referring.

 

Are you referring HP SIM agents or some other HP products agents ?

 

Is that you are looking for discovering the contents of the HP SIM to your CMS(ucmdb) ?

 

Could you clarrify above information, I am sure this will help to understand the issue.

Re: CMS<->Agent-Ports for communication?

Hi Raveendra,

 

I'm planning to install HP SIM v7.1 to manage/monitor all supported HP servers/storage/networking devices

 

Now,

 

I need to know what ALL ports required (with directions i.e. Uni-directional/Bi-Directional) to open between HP SIM server (CMS) & the devices (supported HP servers/storage/networking devices) it will monitor in the same network & those behind firewall....

 

Pls revert if i'm still not able to clear my question....

 

There is no crystal clear doc which suffice this requirement

 

Regards

Re: CMS<->Agent-Ports for communication?

Hi Rajesh,

 

This forum is related to Universal Configuration Management Database (uCMDB/CMS) and not to HP SIM. Therefore I believe you would have better luck in getting the right answer on SIM forum/comunity.

 

Regards,

Adrian

Re: CMS<->Agent-Ports for communication?

Thanks Adrian for the suggestion....

 

but i'am sure that this is "HP SIM" forum. Can anyone else please confirm it?

 

fyi - "CMS" in above post refers Central Management Server (HP SIM server)
