VMware VI 3.5 Port Diagram

Jason Boche posted a VMware VI network communications and port usage diagram that I had to have a copy of for my knowledge base. The diagram is apparently collaboration between Jason and Nigel Metheringham that was started on communities.vmware .com. The result is a single page solution to important port information that I always seem to have to dig out of the VMware installation and quick start manuals.

Here’s an image of the current version of the diagram. Go to the post on boche.net for the .pdf version.

    I’m not sure about 3.5 but does VMHA need ICMP communication to the Default Gateway as part of the default config?

    ICMP is a protocol in and of itself and does not utilize port numbers as we know them in the TCP/IP world for TCP and UDP datagrams. About the best we could for the diagram is draw a line to a default gateway object and label it “ICMP” but without a port number.

    Very nice but i think it would be usefull to add VMware Converter port usage also.

    Jason,

    Thanks for answering Altonius’ ICMP question.

    Nitro,

    I assume the intent of this diagram is to focus on the infrastructure, and so a tool that connects to or from the infrastructure to physical servers (such as VMware Converter) may make the drawing too busy.

    But while we are wishing – It would be cool to have a VDI/VDM infrastructure diagram. Why not diagrams for Lab Manager, Lifecycle Manager, SRM, and VCB too! Of course, I’m not actually volunteering to help or anything …. :)

    Rich,
    Right, i think i could try to do it for VCB and VMConverter since i use both quite often ;)

    How about the VC server’s connection to AD? That’s a good thing to bear in mind when deciding where to put the VC server in the network.
