Subject Re: interactions Cloudstack Vmware
Date Mon, 14 Apr 2014 16:28:54 GMT
Interaction happens on several layers.

Using VMware SDK, CloudStack Management Server initially talks to 
vCenter over 443. However, you will also see some interaction between 
Storage VM as well as Proxy VM to vCenter and ESXi hosts directly.

Are you experiencing any issues or is this for firewall/security review?

If you are attempting to troubleshoot the issue, the easiest way is to 
look at the logs as well as "netstat -antup | grep -i time", look for 
all unestablished connections to see where the flow goes and what needs 
to be open. I do have a doc on communication flow, it may take a week or 
little longer for me to post it online, since it is on one of the hard 
drives @ work, and i'm working remotely this week.

If you need any help in the meantime, let me know,
