Updated: September 8, 2011
Applies To: Virtual Machine Manager for System Center 2012 Release Candidate
[This topic is pre-release documentation and is subject to change in future releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.] 

When you install the VMM management server in Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) for System Center 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.
