Network ports for Site Recovery Manager 6.1

Hi All,

Toady I found good KB article about SRM ports which are required for successful implementation and site pairing.

Site Recovery Manager can experience problems if the required network ports are not open.
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.

vCenter Server and ESXi Server network port requirements for Site Recovery Manager 6.1

Site Recovery Manager requires certain ports to be open on vCenter Server, Platform Services Controller, and on ESXi Server:

Default PortProtocol or DescriptionSourceTargetDescription
443HTTPSSite Recovery ManagervCenter ServerDefault SSL Web port

All NFC traffic for updating or patching the VMX files of virtual machines that are replicated using vSphere Replication use this port.

Site Recovery Manager Server 6.1 network ports

The Site Recovery Manager Server instances on the protected and recovery sites require certain ports to be open.

Note: Site Recovery Manager Server at the recovery site must have NFC traffic access to the target ESXi servers.

Site Recovery Manager and vSphere Replication require that the protected and recovery sites can communicate.

How to upgrade ESXi 4.x,5,x and 6.x from Update Manager.

Today I am going to explain you have to upgrade ESXi with the help of vCenter update manger. 


  1. Login to vCenter with required access
  2. Click Home.
  3. Click the Update Manager icon.
  4. Under the Configuration tab, click Patch Download Schedule.
  5. To view the Patch Download scheduled task:
  6. Click Home.
  7. Click Scheduled Tasks.
  8. Click VMware vCenter Update Manager Update Download.
  9. Click Home > Hosts and Clusters.
  10. Highlight the ESX host you want to update and click the Update Manager tab.
  11. Click Attach. Select Critical Host Patches and Non-Critical Host Patches baselines and click Attach.
  12. Note: To create custom baselines click Home > Update Manager > Baselines and Groups > Create.
  13. To scan the ESX host for missing patches against the repository, right-click on the ESX host and click Scan for Updates > Patches and Extensions > Scan.
  14. Scan progress is shown by the Scan Entity task in the Recent Tasks.
  15. The host scan does not affect running virtual machines.
  16. If the scan fails, ensure that the ports between Update Manager and the ESX host are open. 
  17. When the scan is complete you see the number of patches missing on the ESX host. If no patches are missing, you see Compliant.
  18. To remediate the missing patches to the ESX host:
  19. Power off all virtual machines or vMotion them to a different ESX host.
  20. Place the ESX host into maintenance mode. Right-click on the ESX host, select Enter Maintenance Mode, and click Yes.
  21. Right-click on the ESX host and select Remediate > Critical Host Patches and Non-Critical Host Patches baselines and click Next.
  22. Select which updates or patches to install, click Next >Next > Finish.
  23. Notes:
  24. Remediate progress is shown by the Remediate Entity task in the Recent Tasks.
  25. This task might take some time as Update Manager starts downloading patches from vmware.com.
  26. If the remediation fails, ensure the ports between Upate Manager, the ESX host, and vmware.com are open.
  27. The ESX host might reboot after remediation completes.
