Hi all, trying to connect WFA to vCenter 5. Cannot acquire - says cant connect on port 1433
When I check, 1433 is not open. Checking vcenter server services, it shows SQL server running (see attached screenshot).
What are our options if we can't connect via 1433? I know we can set an alternate port, but how do we know which port to set it to? I also attached a list of open ports on the vcenter server

Kindly review the WFA installation and setup guide available in the documents section of the community.
Appendix E covers VC connectivity. AFAIK you can go to the data source definition and set a different port if 1433 doesn't work for you.
Let me know if you require further assistance.
