.Snapcenter issue communicating to NAS file catalog on port 8145


Hello Gent's,


Snapcenter 2.0  issue communicating to NAS file catalog on port 8145, port on the liux server is not opened.

Any other port to be used ? 











The port needs to be open on the agent host. Check if a firewall is running on the agent host:

            # service iptables status
            If the firewall is running, you either need to open port 8145 on it or turn it off. Run the following command to turn off the port:
            # service iptables stop
To test if the connectivity has been restored, go to the Inventory page in the SnapCenter GUI and select 'Refresh Resources'

I had same issue with v3.0 as well. Followed the steps in the threads and others, did not help. I finally download the Linux plugin and installed it at the Linux manually, after that, went to SnapCenter GUI, went through add host steps without any problem. Just FYI
