Firewall Policies and SnapCenter Plugins

tduran12165

All,

 

We implement Firewall Policies on all of our Netapp Clusters, as well as use SnapCenter in our environment. 

 

Would you know if all Windows hosts in SnapCenter need to be added to the firewall policies allowing  mgmt access for it's various functions?  I assume yes, but wanted to double check.

 

Thanks in advance!

To communicate with the SVM/Cluster and also from the Snapcenter to the Host Plugin you have to allow various ports.

 

Here is a Table:

Thank you, @Fabian1993, and @aladd, appreciate the feedback! 🙂

This would need to be done from all clients in the SnapCenter environment, as plugin hosts (e.g. SQL hosts) get a token to be able to communicate to the SVM on which its data is stored.

 

Using the table as provided by @Fabian1993 to set firewall policies can help.
