Target Machine to Access

Incoming Ports on Target Machine

Accessed From

Feature or Purpose

CommServe server

8111 (Linux)

9400, 9401, 9403 (Windows)

Commvault 1-Touch temporary recovery client

Reserved port to communicate with CommServe server from client during 1-Touch restore

Communication port

9401 (by default)

Transfer data from access node/proxy client to IBMi client machine

For sending and requesting requests (for example, backup, restore, browse, update install) from the CommServe server through access node/proxy machine.

Data ports

Any range

Transfer data from IBMi client machine to access node/proxy client.

For transferring data from IBMi client machine to access node/proxy client during backup.

For transferring data from access node/proxy client to IBMi client machine during restore operations. By default, SSH communication (port 22) is used for installation and services start).

Note

  • If there is no firewall enabled between the IBMi client and access node/proxy machine, then any free random port will be used for data transfer.

  • If there is a firewall enabled between IBMi client and the access node/proxy machine, then allowed port range should be specified in the access node/proxy client properties. This range can be anything, and the number of ports should be more than the total number of simultaneous streams with all of the subclient backups. You can set a specific range to limit the number of open ports
