vRealize Operations Manager uses network ports to communicate with a VMware vCenter Server system and vRealize Operations Manager components.

In Linux and Windows deployments, you must manually verify or configure ports.

Important:

vRealize Operations Manager does not support the customization of server ports.

Network Ports

Configure firewalls so that the following ports are open for bidirectional traffic.

Port Number

Description

22 (TCP)

Used for SSH access to the vRealize Operations Manager cluster.

80 (TCP)

Redirects to port 443.

123 (UDP)

Used by vRealize Operations Manager for Network Time Protocol (NTP) synchronization to the master node.

443 (TCP)

Used to access the vRealize Operations Manager product user interface and the vRealize Operations Manager administrator interface.

10443 (TCP)

Used by vRealize Operations Manager to communicate with the vCenter Server Inventory service.

9042 (TCP)

Used by Cassandra for secure client related communication amongst nodes.

10000–10010 (TCP and UDP)

GemFire Server ephemeral port range used for unicast UDP messaging and for TCP failure detection in the peer-to-peer distributed system.

20000–20010 (TCP and UDP)

GemFire Locator ephemeral port range used for unicast UDP messaging and for TCP failure detection in the peer-to-peer distributed system.

Localhost Ports

Verify that your port configuration allows localhost access to the following ports. You may restrict off-host access to these ports if site policies are a concern.
