This section provides a list of ports used by VMware Aria Suite Lifecycle for product and integration communication.

Note: All the appliances require NTP and DNS access, therefore, you must open the NTP and DNS ports of each respective NTP and DNS server.
Note: VMware Aria Suite Lifecycle is empowered with Common Appliance Platform (CAP), which replaces the VMware Appliance Management Interface (VAMI) for product installations and upgrades. CAP is an approach to standardize appliance management for all VMware appliances. CAP uses port 8000.

Note:

VMware Aria Suite Lifecycle always initiates the communication to retrieve or to send data to the VMware services. You can configure your network to permit outbound traffic and block inbound traffic to the specified port without impacting the VMware Aria Suite Lifecycle features that integrate with the VMware services.

Ensure that any downloads or API host URLs that are redirected from VMware Marketplace are allowed.
