Microsoft SCVMM 2012 Default management ports and protocols

Leave a comment


When you install Virtual Machine Manager 2012 Beta, this will be the ports by default for Virtual Machine Manager.

When you install the VMM management server in System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) 2012,
you can assign some of the ports that it will use for communications and file transfers between the VMM components. While it is a best security practice to change the default ports, not all of the ports can be changed through VMM. The default settings for the ports are listed in the following table.

Connection type Protocol Default port Where to change port setting
SFTP file
transfer from VMware ESX Server 3.0 and VMware ESX Server 3.5 hosts

the IIS port binding with WSUS. They cannot be changed from VMM.
