Issue/Introduction

Site Recovery Manager can experience problems if the required network ports are not open.
  • Site Recovery Manager fails to establish site pairing due to connection termination over port 8095.
  • Site Recovery Manager connection to remote site breaks frequently.
In a Site Recovery Manager deployment, both the protected site and the recovery site must be able to resolve the vCenter Server instance by name. The correct ports must be open on both sites for uninterrupted communication.
 
 
For the list of default ports that older release of Site Recovery Manager uses, see Port numbers that must be open for Site Recovery Manager, vSphere Replication, and vCenter Server (1009562).


Environment

VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager 5.8.x

Resolution

The components that make up a Site Recovery Manager deployment, namely vCenter Server, vSphere Web Client, Site Recovery Manager Server, the vSphere Replication appliance, and vSphere Replication servers, require different ports to be open. You must ensure that all the required network ports are open for Site Recovery Manager to function correctly.
 
General networking guidelines:
  • When troubleshooting Site Recovery Manager pairing and testing issues, eliminate firewalls and security applications as a possible cause of the problem by temporarily disabling or removing the software or item in question.
  • If you are using a VPN adapter such as SonicWALL or Juniper, ensure that the timeout setting is set to the maximum for any tunnel that is open on the required ports.
